Living with Purpose

MINDFULNESS ESSENTIALS III

Living with Purpose

2pm Sun to 1pm Wed – Every 12 weeks from 2019

You may have heard that mindfulness is ‘the latest fad’, implying that this concept is somehow new. It is not. In this program we explore the teachings of some of the wisest people this planet has known and ask ourselves – are there some common and simple truths that we can learn to live by which will help us live lives with purpose and peace of mind and how do they relate to current mindfulness teaching?

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
  • Jane Goodhall

This Living with Purpose Retreat includes twice daily yoga at 7am and 3.30pm 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.

I've gained some marvellous techniques

The mindfulness retreat course was great and provided me with some fantastic tools to help me become more aware and able to relax and destress.

“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.
