Blue Mountains Retreat Centre December Programs

20 November 2021

Dear Friends,

Summer is coming and the weather will be warm. The Stone Cottage gardens look delightful, with beautiful, colourful flowers.

You may like to join our Meditative Gardener day retreat on Sunday 28 November.

It is most important at this time to have positive thoughts. We will have a retreat 4 -5 December titled Higher Positive Thinking which is for those attending their first retreat here.

On Sunday 5 December we will hold a Writing Workshop in the beautiful Stone Cottage.

Soul to Soul on 11 - 12 December is a special retreat for couples.

Here are some words from Dadi Janki on the topic of Peace:

The first lesson on the path to becoming a peacemaker is to stop being at war with myself.

In meditation I can retreat into the inner sanctuary of the soul and enjoy the tranquil flow of loving thoughts passing through my being.

Only when the turbulence of my own mind has subsided can I make peace with the world.

When I have developed some degree of inner peace I can hear the voice of my own wisdom.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

With warm regards,

The Meditative Gardener- Day Program

@ Blue Mountains Retreat Centre
Sunday 28th November, 9:30am - 2pm

- Masks will be worn when inside buildings and we will keep the required distancing, as well as sanitising our hands before entering buildings.

Many thanks for your cooperation.

Some words from Dadi Janki:

Cooperation is based on faith, love and trust. It is a power that comes when there is love for both the task and the special part each one plays in bringing it to its completion. Real cooperation takes place when there are good wishes and pure feelings for each other.

Warmest wishes,

Sally and the Leura team
