online meditation retreat
with Sumedha and Noon
Monday 1 June (evening) - Monday 8 June (morning)
Exploring some of the natural seeds in our own body-heart being of awareness, curiosity, energy, joy, tranquillity, focus and equanimity.
In the Buddhist map these are called the seven factors of enlightenment. They may appear far from our experience, yet they are open doorways that are already here in our own heart.
In this meditation retreat with time for dialogue, sharing and poetry, Sumedha and Noon will offer some earthy tools. Opening windows together of fresh air, open views and new growth....so many possibilities within us.
Weaves through skin.
Being a body
Whose walls are flimsy, gluey spiderwebs.
Winds from what i thought was outside
blowing kisses to the closer winds,
touching, breathing into each other.
All of me only just noticeable.
All the way through.
Thoughts & feelings, still in this,
some smoothys, some jaggedy.
A here just being,
moving in the breeze,
