Imagine a day or indeed a life, free of stress, anger, anxiety, fear, negativity, overthinking and self-criticism. Whilst we may feel this is impossible today, in truth it can become a possibility for everyone, more and more, day-by-day.
In this meditation workshop – with guest teacher Kadam Adam – Discover the deep peace of mind, emotional freedom and genuine happiness that comes from learning – and in time mastering – the art of letting go.
We will explore meditations and practises for daily life, that will enable us to recognise, reduce and let go of unhealthy or unhelpful states of mind, that can all too often burden our minds, leaving us feeling mentally, emotionally and energetically depleted and discouraged.
We will also explore the power of developing and maintaining a wisdom based, peaceful, positive perspective on life and the challenges we meet, that enables us to gradually become free of all unhealthy emotions and states of mind such stress, fear, anxiety, anger and so forth.
In this way, we will come to experience a deep and stable experience of inner peace, genuine happiness and positive energy that cannot be disturbed by changing external conditions.
Seating will be in your choice of chairs or matts and cushions.
There will be a 30min refreshment break at about 3:30pm. Complimentary hot drinks and light snacks will be available in our cafe lounge area.
There’s plenty of time between sessions to read, walk and relax, and the silence in the morning break will allow us the opportunity to reduce distractions and engage more fully with meditation and contemplation.
Everyone is welcome. The retreat is suitable to those new to meditation as well as experienced practitioners.
