Awareness of Patterns of Thought 

12 - 14 Aug     $350 Book Here
13 - 14 Aug     $250 Book Here

In time, by employing the awareness and observation skills that have been introduced during the retreat, it is possible to look more impartially at the thoughts. It will then be possible to notice the patterns, loops, and rhythms of the mental processes.
There is a tendency to create a mental “package” out of every situation and scenario, to gather up a situation and put it together, wrapping and rewrapping, tying and retying. We tend to wrap and tie the way we always have done. It is a familiar pattern, like a lifetime of Christmas rituals.

Encouraged periods of silence help us to become the impartial witness and decrease the mind from derailing and ruminating over and over on the collection of recycled patterns of thought.

Yoga & Meditation Silent Retreat
