Being Love: Yoga & Meditation Retreat

October 18 - October 21, 2024

Gemma Farrell

Settle into the stillness of autumn with a weekend devoted to yoga, meditation, deep relaxation, and spiritual reflection. Our retreat invites us to open our hearts to the abundant love already present within us and to release the many ways in which we resist the inner calling to live from that place of pure presence.Our daily retreat schedule includes guided mindfulness and meditation, vinyasa and deep stretching classes, loving kindness practices, free time to read, rest, or walk in the woods, wonderful plant-based meals, and plenty of warm friendship. You may stay for either two or three nights.We look forward to sharing this special time of discovery as we seek to embody peace, love, and gratitude in our world.“May everyone be happy and safe, and may all hearts be filled with joy.May all beings live in security and in peace - May all of them dwell in perfect tranquility… Let our boundless love pervade the whole universe, above, below, and across. Our love will know no obstacles.” – The Metta Sutta
