A Dose of Spirituality: 1st Week – LOSS

First Week: The theme of Loss

COVID-19 has brought on a sense of loss – loss of life, loss of jobs, loss of identities.

This 1st week, join our retreat directors as they explore the theme of loss, anxiety, and disintegration. The retreat ends with a guided loving-kindness meditation from the Buddhist tradition to cope with loss.

WHY THIS ONLINE RETREAT?

The COVID-19 pandemic has left many of us isolated, frustrated, and even anxious. Our usual sources of spiritual well-being like temples, mosques, and churches have been suspended or have had services greatly reduced.

‘A Dose of Spirituality’ is an interfaith retreat that brings together 5 retreat directors from 5 faith traditions to explore 5 themes relevant to our COVID-19 circumstances over the next 5 weeks.

RETREAT DIRECTORS

  • Hinduism: Kathirasan K – Co-Founder, Hindu Hub
  • Christianity: Lance Ng – Catholic Spiritual Director
  • Islam: Ustaz Mizi Wahid – Founder, Safinah Institute
  • Taoism: Master Steven Ong – Taoist Priest
  • Buddhism: Phra Goh – Buddhist Monk

WHY A RETREAT NOW?

Many of us are already in a good place for a spiritual retreat:

  • Away from our usual lifestyles;
  • Isolated from our normal communities;
  • Feeling more irritable and frustrated;
  • Sensing inner turmoil more than inner peace;
  • Desiring more balance in our daily lives.

Since our movements are already restricted, spending a lot of time at home, or going for walks in nature, this might be the perfect moment for a simple retreat to notice where we were, where we are, and where we are going.

RETREAT DETAILS & THEMES

For every session, each will share some spiritual wisdom from their tradition for a few minutes, and then a different one each week will guide us on a simple faith-neutral practice we could do at home. 

Each retreat episode is a 30-minute recorded video posted on Mondays every week – so you can watch anytime during the week!
