14 – 16 May 2010: Waterfall Retreat Centre

Restoring the Balance Retreat: This retreat is to help us face the challenge of living happy and useful lives in an increasingly bewildering world. We cannot change the world to conform to our wishes. What we can do is to have mastery over how we experience it: we can learn to accept and adapt to ever-changing circumstances maturing our minds in the process. With balancing we learn to access our inner potential through the process of living. The weekend workshop is a designed method to help bring our minds into harmony and balance and will include sessions of guided relaxation, creativity and mindfulness practices.
