Detox Your Heart Weekend Retreat

Friday October 26, 7:00 pm - Sunday October 28, 3:00 pm

A weekend retreat based on Vimalasara’s book – Detox Your Heart – Meditations on Emotional Trauma. This retreat focuses on the first stage of the Metta Bhavana and for people who are working with the sharp edges of suffering that come from childhood experiences. Compassionate Dharma will create the context for us to explore our self-harming behaviours and begin to let go. Vimalasara will take retreatants on a compassionate journey to help us work with our addictive and compulsive behaviours.

Together we will sit and be held in the lap of Avalokiteshvara and be cradled by his thousand arms. We will enter into the depths of loving kindness and allow the salve of Metta to heal our wounds.This retreat will combine meditation, chanting and compassionate inquiry to help free us from the hell realm of self-harm. Please Bring A Photograph of yourself as a child or something to symbolize your childhood.
