Silent Meditation Retreat - 1 Day Beginner Practice with Caroline Stewart

  • Ringing Cedars Retreat Range Road 15 Parkland County, AB Canada (map)

I've heard it said that prayer is asking and meditation is listening. Both connect us to the divine spark of potential within and open us to grace. Living in this space of openness is our ultimate goal. There is nothing to do but ask and listen. All else unfolds with the expression of desire that wells from within.

This 1 Day Meditation Retreat led by Caroline Stewart offers you the time out you crave from all the busyness and demands of daily life. It offers a space for reconnection, for remembering all set within the beautiful natural surroundings of our new Retreat space in Parkland County AB.

{WHO IS THE RETREAT FOR?}

{ABOUT CAROLINE}

Caroline's journey with Yoga, Meditation and Personal Development began some 17 or so years ago with a crash course introduction to both the physical and spiritual practices of Yoga. She was immediately hooked, but not by the asana. It was the philosophy - the deeper teachings, that got her.

Yoga and Meditation have been constants for Caroline. At some times playing a greater role in terms of physical practice, while always remaining a part of her ideology and approach to life.

Caroline loves to facilitate self-discovery. With so much depth and wisdom to explore, Meditation offers the perfect vehicle for this journey of inquiry, growth and personal evolution.
