Weekend Winter retreat
Treat yourself to a peaceful and rejuvenating weekend with Jonathan Weber at the beginning of the new year. In the beautiful setting of Dharma Mountain Meditation resort, sink into the silent nature and reconnect with your inner peace through mindfulness, meditation, and therapeutic yoga. This is a perfect opportunity to explore mindful living, set the tone for the year to come, take a much-needed time out for self-care, or simply to enjoy the beauty of Norwegian winter in a supportive community.
The therapeutic yoga will be gentle and accessible to everyone, with a soft flow, yin and restorative styles, as well as mindful movement. The meditations will also be guided, and there will be instructions on how to deepen in the practice. Part of the retreat will be in silence, supporting inner reflection. Enjoy delicious vegetarian meals prepared with love, with special diet options. There will also be a sauna, optional. And time for yourself to just BE and enjoy the beauty of the Norwegian winter in cozy cabins.
Jonathan Weber has 30 years of experience of meditation in the yogic traditions, and has been teaching mindfulness in Norway since 2006. He is certified in Mindful Therapeutic yoga and educated in MBSR through the Institute of Mindfulness-based Approaches. Jonathan brings a natural warmth, deep wisdom, and calm presence to his teaching.
