OUR MIND IS ASTONISHING
1 – 5 June Bank Holiday 2022
7-8am (BST) – Morning Meditation
8-9pm (BST) – Evening Talks
“The mind, that most luxuriant flowering of the highest possibilities of the material world, likes to natter and mope and trivialise itself. We let an astonishing fertility run to seed.”
Everything we do creates us – for better or for worse. Our thoughts, the things we say, the stuff we do, creates and recreates us. We become smaller and more limited or larger and more expansive. The choice is ours – if we work with our mind.
The health of your mind is the health of your life
Changing your mind is changing the world. Afterall, you are part of the world. Let’s make that ‘part’ as loving, courageous, creative and connected as possible. A retreat is the best set of conditions to help you change your mind.
About the Programme
The retreat takes place at Adhisthana, International Buddhist Centre and is open to complete newcomers as well as experienced meditators. The programme includes meditation instruction, yoga, exploration of the nature of mind, periods of silence, and communal ritual – all set in the glorious Herefordshire countryside.
Morning meditations and evening talks will be streamed online, so you come along for these if you can’t attend in person
