11 April : 10am - 4pm
Take a Sunday out to cultivate your inner peace and engage in simple yet profound meditations designed to help you to keep your mind positive and peaceful in the midst of busy daily life. In this particular Beginner's Meditation Retreat we'll be exploring meditations to cultivate patience and overcome our anger.
This retreat is designed specifically with beginners in mind, so no prior meditation experience is necessary and everybody is welcome. You'll also have an option for a digital detox, where we can safe-keep your mobile or tablets for the duration of this retreat - so less external distractions for you in that a few hours.
Each meditation session will consist of a brief prayer and breathing meditation to help to make our mind positive and peaceful, followed by a short commentary to highlight the object of our meditation. We'll then engage in a guided meditation session together to allow the object of meditation to mix with our mind.
There will also be a dedicated Q&A session so that you have an opportunity to clarify any questions you have with respect to meditation and Buddhism.
