EVENTS 2020

January 11+12, 10 am to 2.30                                                                                              Two Day Workshop in Resilience and Meditation

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

Meditation and quiet time, some work on bringing meditation into every moment, beautiful vegetarian food, bushland walking and the charm of this old guest house converted to a retreat centre.

Sunday mornings
8.00 – 9.00 am 

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:  December 6, 2019

  • 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

There is no fee for these regular weekly meditations –  your donation will be gratefully accepted, should you choose to  make one
