Our Intention

In the past year, the COVID-19 pandemic has challenged and shaken us in many ways. In a way, it has called us to pause and re-examine the way we have been approaching ourselves and the world.

This conference is an invitation to slow down; to deeply listen, sense and feel what is present for us and what is emerging at an individual, relational and collective level.

It is an invitation to look at pertinent questions and inquire from a space of stillness.

What would it mean to live and serve from our deepest Self - from ‘Presence’ and develop as a kinder, wiser community?

Our heart’s intention is to touch into a sense of Presence through the practice and learning of Mindfulness, Compassion and Wisdom from various perspectives and modes of application.

As we reflect, inquire and practice, we also connect as people drawn to a similar inquiry. We invite each of you to contribute to this collective space that we seek to hold and from here move into our lives with greater clarity, nourishment, compassion and love.

It is an invitation to…
