An Evening of Tao with Barny Wong

Friday September 23rd, 7:00-8:30 pm

"We are healed from suffering only by experiencing it to the full."
~ Marcel Proust.

The human quest in liberating the human condition from suffering has been a constant search in the hearts and minds of seekers, seekers ranging from Proust above to Tao. The dizzying offerings ranging from New Age to variants of Classical religions also casts the appearance that awakening is multi-variant in diagnosis to remedy.

QiGong Workshop June 11

Half-Day of practice on Saturday June 11 doing mindful movement and contemplating some Rumi Poems with Jim Dalton. For instance:

If you want to change the ways others treat you, you should first change the way you treat yourself, fully and sincerely, there is no way you can be loved.

Once you achieve that stage, however, be thankful for every thorn that others might throw at you.

October Hollyhock Retreat with Robert

Oct 2-7 - Hollyhock, BC, Canada.

Be fully alive. Let go of anxiety, self-criticism, depression, fear, and loneliness. You are not your moods, racing mind, compulsions, addictions or wounds from the past. Awaken to the love, compassion and joy that are your natural state.

Allow meditation to bring vibrancy, enthusiasm, connection, humour and awareness to every aspect of your life.

Fall Breitenbush Retreat with Robert

Oct 30 - Nov 4

Mindfulness (Vipassana) meditation is the art of being fully alive. On this silent retreat we will be mindful of every activity, from sitting in the meditation hall, to walking in the ancient forest, to bathing in the hot springs. You will go home with practices that will change your life. Suitable for beginning and experienced meditators.
