This is an online event.
From the organizer:
Naikan is a Japanese therapeutic approach involving a process of life-review. Derived originally from a practice used in training Buddhist priests, it focuses on parental relationships, often revealing feelings of gratitude and regret. Naikan has been adapted to one-to-one therapy and groups in Japan and the West. This day retreat will use the three primary Naikan questions to explore our relationship to the planet, the ultimate parent of humanity, asking: What has the Earth done for me? What have I done in return? What troubles have I caused the Earth? Using solitary reflection in nature, it will conclude with shared celebration.
The retreat will be run using the Zoom platform. This can easily be downloaded once you receive your invitation, but you will need internet connection to participate. It will include guided meditation sessions, time for personal reflection and sharing time. You will receive instructions for the retreat ahead of the date so please book in good time.
This event is hosted by Tariki Trust.
