Often the mind is stormy and rages against the reality of your situation. Sometimes we calm that in meditation. That’s good.
However, even the calm of meditation is transitory if the mind still has the unbudging rocks of discontent underneath the surface. This requires looking at them and actively dissolving them. The workshop includes meditation and work on those rocky foundations.
MEDITATION RETREAT February 7 – 9 at Healesville
REGULAR WEEKLY PROGRAMS continue through the year
Regular Meditation Circles
Discussion and Meditation Friday nights 7.00– 8.00 pm except on Blissout nights which are 7.00 – 10.00 pm –
Sitting quietly with others for a full hour. It is so easy and so easeful. And sometimes we go out for coffee afterwards, at a local cafe, at 9.00
BLISSOUT Replaces the Friday meditation every two months
Extended still-mind meditation. This is a 3 hour meditation sit. We have short breaks to move your body and change your position if you wish. And you are free to make any adjustments that you wish, throughout – no need to sit in agony.
Next: February 28 2020
NOTE: As it is an extended period of stillness, and if you have any physical or mental issues, it is best to clear it with your health provider if you are unsure whether it is appropriate for you. Under some conditions, we may ask you to bring an OK note from your therapist. See Precautions
