Meditate / Create 
Retreat, 10:30am - 12:30pm MT

“In order to find out how to say what must be said, you have to go to the place where there are no words. And you can only do that by going through yourself and intimately contacting the world. And then often, language [& creativity] will come forward from that.”
- Peter Levitt

 

In this short retreat with Hannah Marsh, you're invited to pause and connect with your inner experience through meditation and creative exploration. In the first part of the retreat, you'll be guided through mindfulness meditations, cultivating presence, steadiness, and ease. Then there will be a period of silent practice, when you may choose to continue to meditate and/or creatively explore. Those with a creative idea or current project are welcome to bring it. Creative prompts will also be provided. In the last part of the retreat, there will be time to discuss the experience and share a closing meditation practice. 

 

If you've been finding yourself overly busy or harsh with yourself, this will be an opportunity to invite kindness, ease, and playfulness, as we slow down and hold space for each other to unleash our natural creativity.

No arts or crafts background needed. Both new and experienced meditators are welcome.

You’re welcome to sit on a chair or use a meditation cushion/bench. You may find it useful to have a yoga mat, blankets, pillows, and other props to sit comfortably. 

Feel free to bring any arts or crafts materials you'd like for your creative exploration (writing, visual art, music, knitting, etc.): pen, paper, markers, clay, fabrics...It's all welcome!

How to Give

This class is offered by donation (dana). Dana is a practice of generosity that traditionally goes hand-in-hand with a mindfulness practice. You're invited to give with an open heart, whatever amount feels good to give. If you're uncertain, a suggested donation is $15-35, but no one is turned away for lack of funds. We're grateful for your contribution, which supports the continued running of our programs. Dana can be sent by e-transfer to hannah@beinghere.ca or you can contact us for other options.
