Sábado | 30 Novembro 2020

Com Joan Palma

Horário | 09:00 – 17:30

Venha connosco passar um dia completamente dedicado aos prazer simples de estar presente – um dia para escutar e ouvir, olhar e ver, sentir e deixar-se ir…

No dia 30 de Novembro, a Joan Palma, professora qualificada de Mindfulness, vai liderar um retiro de um dia para ensinar como podemos regressar a nós próprios, cultivando maior presença e criando uma conexão mais centrada com o nosso ser. Venha praticar experienciar mais plenamente o ser em vez de estar sempre em ‘modo de fazer’.

Este retiro é uma oportunidade de mergulhar num período intensivo de prática da mindfulness/atenção plena, onde o silêncio como pano de fundo se torna um aliado à descoberta, compaixão e ao cuidar de cada um de nós.

Se já tiver uma prática meditativa ou se já tem alguma experiência, venha praticar.
