The Buddhist Retreat Centre, Ixopo

Teacher: Susan Sloane and Karyn Cardoso
Dates: Friday 13 October 2017 – Sunday 15 October 2017

Nia Technique: Generating the sensation of loving and appreciating your body through music, movement, dance and martial arts.

Learn why Nia is a lifestyle practice that has a vitalising impact on your nervous system and strengthens your ability to sustain body-centred awareness. Feel how every cell in your body can vibrate in joy and how you are connected to everything that surrounds you. It is more than a cardio dance fitness class.

Perched on a ridge at the head of a valley in the Umkomaas river system in KwaZulu-Natal; the Buddhist retreat Centre looks out on a vista of indigenous valleys, forests and rolling hills receding like waves in the blue distance. Here, for more than twenty years people of all religions have come to experience peace as well as tranquillity. It is a gentle, sympathetic space where one can be still and get in touch with oneself and reflect on the things that crowd one’s life. CNN featured the BRC as one of the 10 finest Meditation centres in the world.

Paths threading the 300 acre property each bring their own revelation: follow the pine-scented path to the dam; walk past ancient cycads to the tracks of early Voortrekker wagons; discover an assegai-sharpening stone on a hillside; or point your feet towards the rocky outcrop that provides a perfect seat for contemplating the valley below. Nearby are the breeding sites of the exquisite; but rare Blue Swallow of which the Endangered Wildlife Trust has appointed the BRC a custodian. Their presence, together with the BRC’s commitment to encouraging the indigenous biodiversity of the area; has led to the Centre being declared a Natural Heritage Site by former President Nelson Mandela. The BRC is a birder’s paradise, with more than 160 species recorded.

Integrated into this setting are the Centre’s buildings; accommodation lodges and cottages, the dining room and office, a shop, a lecture and art studio, a library, and the meditation hall. The labyrinth, the Zen gardens, the deer park as well as the Buddha Boma invite one in for reflection and contemplation.
