Transforming the Emotions

Friday September 8th - Thursday September 14th

          at The Dharma Centre of Canada

Do you struggle with habitual emotional patterns?

On this retreat, we will address personality fragmentation that occurs when we donít accept those parts of ourselves that we view as negative. Join us on the road of transforming negative emotional states through acceptance and loving kindness.

This retreat will incorporate:
  • guided imagination
  • journaling
  • exercise
  • music listening
  • classical meditation practices
... to provide a well-rounded approach to integrating these patterns.

Is this retreat suitable for me?

It is not a requirement that you have proficiency in meditation practice in order to attend and benefit from this retreat. However some degree of mental focus and physical comfort will be assets to gain the most from the meditation portion of this retreat.

Is this a silent retreat?

We will begin this retreat with the sharing of what you would like to enable in yourself with your fellow retreatants. As we move into the main body of the retreat, you will be encouraged to restrict verbalization to occur during the classes only, for questions and the optional sharing of your experiences. The purpose of this is to encourage the development of inner silence and receptivity to the material that is arising, and reduce the distractions that come of interpersonal conversations. As we near the end of the retreat, this restriction will be loosened as you may wish to share your thoughts and feelings with others.
