27 – 29 May 2022 #theselfcompassionbreak: Return to Love | At Stanford Valley Guest Farm
May 27, 2022
Stanford Valley Guest Farm
“Love is what we were born with. Fear is what we have
learned here. The spiritual journey is the relinquishment-or unlearning of fear and the acceptance of love back into our hearts. Love is the essential existential fact. It is our ultimate reality and our purpose on earth. To be consciously aware of it, to experience love in ourselves and others, is the meaning of life.” ~ Marianne Williamson.
A retreat designed to re-connect you with your true essence – which is LOVE, CONNECTION, AWARENESS. This is an invitation to LET GO of fear, anxiety and social isolation. Karen Nebe will share embodiment practices, intuitive art-making, self-compassion meditations and mindfulness practices that will help you feel supported, nurtured, seen, heard and loved.

Yoga with Mari-Louise:
Mari-Louise Van Der Walt believes that, as with teachers, the right practice tends to show up at the right time. 2011 was the start of massive and unrelenting change in her life and coincidentally, the period that followed also coincided with her yoga journey. “Yoga allowed space to explore change, find more balance and wrestle with the dichotomy of discipline and freedom. Mostly Yoga has brought me immense joy. Paying that joy forward in any way is an enormous privilege.” She completed a Yoga Alliance Registered 200 Hour Yoga Teachers Training Programme with Yoga Warrior in Johannesburg in 2016 and has continued her learning journey with additional courses over time.
