You are invited to experience the peace and tranquillity of practising meditation by moonlight. The gentle sounds of nature at night are an ideal setting to focus and reflect on 'inner' experiences. During your time within Te Tūī ā Taane southern enclosure, we will encourage you to develop an attuned approach to your meditation and to your ongoing experience.
Guidance will be offered by Elizabeth Day and Willa Thaniya Reid of Kihikihi Meditation & Yoga. They will guide you through sessions of walking and seated meditation. You will be encouraged to practice in silence. This allows a deepening of your ability to notice and reflect on ‘inner’ experiences, and to attune to all the maunga offers.
6:30pm – Registration at the Manu Tīoriori visitor centre.
7:00pm – Meditation practice will begin
8.30pm – Break (hot chocolate supplied)
10.00pm – Farewells
