Event description

Description

This weekend retreat will nourish your body, mind and spirit through mindful connection with nature, food and the basic wellbeing that is our birthright.

The Old Monastery Stroud is a unique, tranquil retreat space located in magnificent foot hills of the Barrington Tops just three hours from Sydney and an hour north of Newcastle. This idyllic location provides the perfect venue for a nourishing weekend retreat that will leave you feeling rested, rejuvenated and ready for whatever life presents.

Throughout the weekend you will be invited to nourish your innate capacity for mindful living. Supported by periods of silence and opportunities for solitude, the program will include guided meditation, mindful movement, walking, listening, observing and eating. You will have time to be both with yourself and by yourself, to connect with what resonates and inspires, and to transform what no longer serves you well.

This retreat is designed and led by internationally acclaimed mindfulness teacher, Dr Sharn Rocco. Throughout the retreat Sharn will share insights and understandings gleened from her decades of study and practice with some of the great meditation masters of our time. Sharn has twice been scholar-in-residence at the Garrison Institute New York and has received teachings and attended retreats with Thich Nhat Hanh, HH Dalai Lama, Mingyur Rinpoche, Chokyi Nyima, Tsoknyi Rinpoche and Dzonsar Khentze. Since 2012 Sharn has led mindfulness retreats, workshops and short courses in Australia, Bali, USA, Slovenia, Norway and Samoa.

Exquisite vegetarian meals, thoughtfully prepared from locally sourced and organic products, are an integral part of the retreat. Mindful wholefoods caterer and wild food enthusiast, Leah Suters, has designed a menu that will inspire and sustain you throughout the retreat and beyond. Each dish will be described and Leah will provide recipes to support you to make delicous, nourishing food choices and inprove your culinary skills and repetoire.

Suitable for complete beginners or people wanting to deepen or renew their meditation practice, this retreat is a special opportunity for anyone wanting to take some time out, nourish themselve and learn to live life with more mindfullness, joy and confidence.

With only 25 places available, this is a special opportunity to be supported by an experienced teacher, connect with yourself and others and have your questions answered.
