What Client’s Say
Stillness in Action is an extraordinary phenomena. It changes lives. It changes worlds. If you are seeking a new way of seeing, of being, of awakening, then retreat with Bobbi, Ken and Simon. After 7 days, I feel truly blessed. I can appreciate all aspects of life with new clarity, deeper compassion, greater insight and directed intention.”David NSW Magistrate
Stillness in Action provides the sacred process for getting off the treadmill of a hectic, crazy lifestyle, in order to come to deep stillness, energized again to engage more meaningfully in the world. Thank you all.Annette Arnold, Josephite sister
“Stillness in Action is exactly where the Social Change movement needs to go. The balance of personal enquiry, nurturing and remembering our interconnection with everything works for meDavid Naylor community activist.
“A gentle and supportive way to learn how to discover what really matters.”Christine Dann NZ
“Bobbi, Claire and Emma created and held such a gracious space – which allowed wisdom and insights to flow so freely to and from all the participants. Bobbi’s lightness in her teaching is such a wonderful balance to my (previous) structured idea of meditation, and to the heaviness I was feeling about our predicament in the world.”Cynthia Mitchell Sustainability Consultant
