July

Dates: Monday, July 6th, 7:30pm EST
In this exploration we will work with the relationship between our most dominant of the five senses, sight, the mind, and the heart. We'll explore this relationship between visual input - -> thought -- > emotion, and see if we can begin to change hardwired patterns and perhaps even our worldview

Dates: Monday, July 13th, 7:30pm EST
Tonight we’ll begin with connecting to the strength in our network of relationships past and present. Then we’ll go a step further, extending our awareness to those areas where the culture is contracted or knotted up. Our goal is not to unravel these knots, but to bring a fierce compassionate consciousness to them.

Dates: Monday, July 20th, 7:30pm EST
In this meditation, we explore the life-changing magic of self-compassion. We'll proceed in stages: first we create a bit of metaphorical space between our witnessing awareness and our seething minds and bodies. Then we kick back and watch our wiggly bits wiggle, always curious, on the lookout for subtle patterns. Halfway through we move into a deliberate self-compassion practice, the simple but profound orientation of caring for what we find inside.

Dates: Monday, July 27th, 7:30pm EST
The answers to our current predicaments - from the personal to the global - can be found within the wide and wonderful, creative and resilient web of nature. And to be clear, nature is a web of relationships which we are a part of; not apart from. So let's tune in! We'll start by practicing psychological death - letting go of who we have known ourselves to be and with our freshly shattered egos, we'll meditatively drop in to our favourite nature spots, rekindling our relationships with nature and listening for some moments to whatever wisdom the earth might have to share.

August

13

Location: Ecology Retreat Centre
Dates: Thursday, August 13th @ 11am to Sunday, August 16th @ 4pm
We made the difficult decision to cancel this summer's retreat. With travel and gathering restrictions still in place in Ontario, and public health guidance cautioning against prolonged indoor exposure, we just can't see being able to offer it safely and viably. This feels like the right decision to prioritize the health and well-being of our community during this challenging time. We will aim to offer it again in summer 2021. Thanks for understanding!
