Deeper Presence Retreat | 27-29 May 2022

Retreat with Annika Nicol

27-29 May 2022
Sediba Mountain Retreat,
Hartbeespoort Dam

15 CPD points for psychologists

This retreat will provide the opportunity for a depth of enquiry into the practice of Presence, or Mindfulness, in our relationships.

We will explore the space that opens in relationship when we are able to give ourselves quality attention in the listening process.

There will be the opportunity to look at the unconscious patterns and personal obstacles that hold us back from being fully present in our relationships. 

  • We will slow down and allow space to clearly see, feel and sense what is happening in the present moment.
  • We will connect with the direct experience of the feelings, sensations and thoughts in our bodies.    
  • We will explore staying connected with ourselves as we enter into relationship with others.
  • Through meditation, movement, sharing, and small group enquiry there will be support to stay present as we relate with different layers of our experience.  

This retreat can open the possibility of a deeper and more intimate way of relating with ourselves, others and the world. 

COST: R4 500 including teaching, meals and accommodation.  

CPD fee for psychologists:  R500
