Three Stillness Circles This Fall 2019

Here’s your invitation to our next event, “The Stillness Within.” This series of three stillness circles will replace our usual fall retreat at Maison Trestler.

Attend as many or as few as you like. They are loosely connected with the common theme of “entering the stillness.” See below for more details.

The Stillness Within  
Three Stillness Circles with Cedric

Dates: Sept.16, Oct.21, & Nov.18, 2019, 7:00-8:15 PM
Location: 1055, rue Tecumseh, Dollard-des-Ormeaux, QC
Donation: $5/circle

Our fall series consists of three Monday “stillness circles.” They take place at Chateau Dollard, in the senior residence’s downstairs activity room.

You will experience guided relaxation and meditation practice, silent sitting, a heart talk, and a closing healing visualization. Each circle is designed to cultivate greater awareness, balance, and stillness in your life.

No meditation experience necessary.  Freewill donation.  All are welcome.

Some Background to the Series: The Art of Stillness

Movement makes most sense when grounded in Stillness. In an age of speed, I began to think, nothing could be more invigorating than going slow.

In an age of distraction, nothing can feel more luxurious than paying attention.
And in an age of constant movement, nothing is more urgent than sitting still.

You can go on vacation to Paris or Hawaii or New Orleans three months from now, and you’ll have a tremendous time, I’m sure. But if you want to come back feeling new—alive and full of fresh hope and in love with the world—I think the place to visit may be Nowhere.
