'Tis the Season of Joy, Love, Sharing and Giving
As we celebrate this festive season of great joy, we'd like to share with you a few reflective thoughts as we look back over 2016.
The practice of Meditation as Medicine for the Mind, has played a significant part of the retreats we've run this year. Many of our retreatants have found our signature program of Mindfulness Based Stillness Meditation to be a true wonder and treasure for them. As they have finished the program and gone back into their daily lives, this is what some of them have said:-
"I'm feeling empowered and in control. I have incorportated a daily meditation into my very hectic schedule this week and am so grateful that I invested the time to attend your retreat. I've begun my meditation at a basic level - focusing on preparation, relaxation and breathing with the goal of working to stillness. I perform this new daily habit prior to a 20 minute workout session in the gym and now can't imagine a more perfect way to start the day!!" ~ Peter Beveridge
"The weekend retreat prgram was perfect in its entirety. I felt cared for, valued and fully appreciated. I was able to fully emmerse in the entire process and learn exactly what I needed for my mindfulness journey." ~ Kerrie Beer
"Your genuine faith, passion and spiritual depth shared throughout the weekend was so very much appreciated. My gratitude to you Chris. Blessings and appreciation for affirming and supporting me on my journey with our God. My thoughts from this weekend retreat are that it was faithfilled, prayerful, inspiring, nurturing and full of wisdom. There was such as very good focus on mindfulness as it covered many aspects of the practice. There was such a sound combination of theory and the experiential that gave a suitable balance. Chris, your delivery of this program was calm, confident and friendly with clear expression, and your knowledge was very thorough and wise. Thank you and I'll be enrolling in your next retreat on Guided Imagery". ~ Vicki Hancock (meditation and yoga teacher in Newcastle).
Our next fully residential retreat will be over the weekend of 17 - 19 February 2017.
We welcome you to enter into times of retreat for renewal of mind, body and spirit amidst the quiet beauty of this place.
We would like to thank you so much for your support in 2016. From all of us at Health 'n' Harmony for Life, we are wishing you and your loved ones a very special festive season and a wonderful New Year. Live Well. Be Well.
