MINDFULNESS ESSENTIALS III

Living with Purpose

2pm Sun to 1pm Wed – Every 12 weeks

Come and join Billabong Retreat and The Mindfulness Show founder Paul von Bergen on this fun and thought provoking journey through evolution and the ancient masters to work out if there is a purpose to this thing called life.

This program is as seen at The Mindfulness Show and explores the teachings of some of the wisest people this planet has known to explore if there are some common and simple truths that we can learn to find purpose and peace of mind.

Some of the old and new masters we will explore include Hipocrates, Jesus, The Buddha, Gandhi, Einstein, Da Vinci, Rumi, Eckhart Tolle, Patanjali, Louise Hay and Jane Goodhall.

This Living with Purpose Retreat includes twice daily yoga at 7am and 3.30pm, mindful eating plus mindfulness and meditation workshops at 9am and evening meditation every other night.

It will also include some extended meditations and some morning periods of silence over breakfast.

This program is complimentary to other mindfulness retreats and can be done in any order.

“Inspirational”

I have just experienced a Mindfulness Course at Billabong and found the combination of science and thousands-of-years-old yoga and meditation practice so appropriate for where I am at now.
