When we add kindness to mindfulness, we get kindfulness. Mindfulness practice without kindness can become quiet dry and cold. Kindfulness colours the mind and leaves a fragrance. It not only brings us peace but transfoms the mind into being more compassionate and courageous.

Be Kind to Yourself… From the Heart…

Diamond Heart Retreats

In 2017, Mark and Marloes Joseph ran the first Diamond Heart retreat at TRC. It was one of their most beautiful and memorable experiences. The group practiced some yoga, engaged with the teachings, enjoyed and explored the beauty of the retreat facility. There was enough time for everyone to wander off alone, to swim and just be. We respected each other and shared in the spirit of meditation and kindness.

Retreat Topics

This year, topics will include:
~ Developing Kindness to Oneself
~ Deconstructing the Ego
