Mindfulness Practitioners Workshop
A One-Day Event at Kawai Purapura, Auckland
Mindfulness practice assists us to feel organised, connected and responsive. It enables attunement to the deep inner virtues of our being, so we are less distracted by that which is not original and true of us.
In the quiet and supportive environment of Kawai Purapura Retreat Centre, we will explore applied mindfulness practices through a series of guided sitting and walking exercises, reflections and inquiry.
This workshop is suitable for both beginners and experienced mindfulness practitioners who wish to extend themselves into new areas of learning.
Venue: Yoga Shala Workshop Space, Kawai Purapura, 14 Mills Lane, Albany, Auckland
Cost: $100 Please bring food for a light lunch
