Brightening Your Inner Clarity ~ Awareness of Awareness Meditation Retreat.
Time & Location
About the Event
This weekend retreat is ideal for those who would like to learn, embrace or deepen their meditation practice. The meditations will be guided and focused firstly on the breath and moving gradually to the observation of the mind itself ~ of being aware of awareness itself. The retreat will have a strong focus on being mindful of own intentions and how to transform them into more compassionate and wise ones. The mornings will be in silence.
- if you plan to sit on the floor, bring your own cushion and a blanket
- bring a notebook to take notes
- arrive 10min earlier to the first session every morning
- have a good night sleep before each day
- bring an open and curious mind :)
Why to meditate?
Maybe you want to start meditating because you want to be less reactive, feel less stressed, or be more focused. Maybe meditating is part of a wider personal development plan of some kind. Or maybe you’re looking to improve your relationships with those around you. Whatever the reason, training the mind through meditation is training in awareness, and training in awareness offers the potential to fundamentally transform your perspective on life.
