Tranquillity of practising meditation within Te Tūī a Tāne Southern Enclosure. The birdsong and gentle sounds of nature are an ideal setting to focus and reflect on 'inner' experiences.
During your day, 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.
