The Four Brahma Viharas: Loving-Kindness, Compassion, Appreciative Joy, and Equanimity
May 3rd-5th, St. Stephens College, Edmonton.
Intimate retreat so available spots are limited.
Co-hosted by Jill Koziey Counselling

The retreat will focus on the relationship between the four Brahma Viharas and how they support and balance one other. This retreat is a gentle introduction to the heart practices, as well as an opportunity for those familiar with the Brahma Viharas to deepen their understanding of them as a complement to their mindfulness meditation.  For more information and to register, please visit the event page above, or simply email your interest to jkoziey@telus.net.
