Many of us are familiar with the adage: “The only constant there is, is change”. 

Despite consciously knowing that change is an inevitable part of life, many of us feel unsettled by our own and others’ changing moods, energy-levels & reactions. Not just that, we also berate ourselves or judge others for not living up to our expectations.

This weekend retreat offers me-time, time to slow down, connect and reflect. The theme explored, is the universal concept of the gunas. The gunas are often described as attributes of nature, responsible for all of creation, from the smallest nanoparticle to the distant galaxies. It is the working of the three gunas, that enables the seed to grow into a tree, the plant matter to decompose, and the rose to spread its fragrance. It is due to the working of the gunas that you feel dull one moment, energised the next and blissfully at peace another. 

Join us in exploring how these ancient teachings can support you becoming more accepting of and at peace with change. Gain a new perspective that enables you to flow with life more freely and increase personal resilience.
