About this event

Our desires are powerful driving forces in our lives. They can lead us to happiness and fulfilment, or problems and dissatisfaction.

Uncontrolled desire (referred to as attachment according to Buddha’s teachings) is one of the main causes of our craving, anxiety and daily problems. It is the source of our relationship difficulties and addictive patterns and prevents us from enjoying our life.

On this day retreat we will explore the habitual thought patterns that function to induce this constant craving and learn practical Buddhist wisdom and meditations that help us let go of craving and find satisfaction and fulfilment in our lives.

Sessions will include guided meditations and talks. This retreat is suitable for everyone and everyone is welcome.

During the breaks between sessions you are welcome to relax in the meditation room or lounge. Hot drinks and light refreshments will be available. You are also welcome to bring a packed lunch or check out the many cafes within easy walking distance.
