25 – 27 March 2022 #theselfcompassionbreak: Inviting Hope | At Temenos, McGregor
March 25, 2022
“Active Hope is not wishful thinking. Active Hope is not waiting to be rescued… by some saviour. Active Hope is waking up to the beauty of life on whose behalf we can act.” ~ Joanna Macy.
Hope is the belief that circumstances will get better. It’s not a wish for things to get better – it’s the actual belief, the inner knowing that things will get better, no matter how big or small.
In the face of significant challenges and losses along our journey, hope is the mood in which we hold a commitment to possibility.
Hope is not passive; it is living and breathing. It is at the core of who we are. This is an invitation to honour our human capacity for hope with Karen as she guides intuitive art-making, meditation, reflection and shares self-compassion practices that will invite more ease.

Yoga with Charmaine:
Charmaine Horsburgh is a Yoga practioner who met her teacher, Swami Venkatesananda of Rishikesh, India in the the early 1970’s and began a lifelong journey of yoga study, practice and investigation. The culture of learning which Swamji encouraged has led her to constantly be looking for ways to deepen and inform her own practice and teaching skills. Charmaine now incorporates the cutting edge postural alignment techniques of the Bowspring into the yoga classes that she offers. It has been her great good fortune to learn from, and keep on learning from, the co-founders of the beneficial system, Desi Springer and John Friend.
