Deepening Awareness - Silent Week-long Retreat

August 13-17, 2018 we will be offering a silent Deepening Awareness retreat focused on mindfulness, presence, and nature. This silent-meditation, week-long retreat is supported by the serene environment of our retreat center, nestled in the Gatineau Hills; delicious and healthy food; and the thoughtful group that gathers. 

Spend the week learning how to live your life with mindfulness and presence with Billie Hillis & Jerome Giovanizzo. Yoga, meditation, mindful periods of silence, forest walks, healthy food, sharing around the campfire with friends new and old, and even some “in nature” meditations will be part of the week.

This retreat will deepen your practice of Meditation and Yoga, allow you to spend silent time in nature and will be infused with loving-kindness practices! It is aimed at self-care – a luxurious time to spend in contemplation and restore your wellbeing through the art of practice and the soothing hands of nature.

We hope you can join us for some nurturing time in the tranquility of the natural world, rejuvenating your body and mind from the inside out.

Billie Hillis will be leading this Silent Retreat with sensitivity, warmth, and her straight forward delivery as she shares the lessons she has learned in her extensive experiences. Jerome will bring joy, sincerity and humour into his teachings with a genuine passion for helping others.
