Sligo, Opening the Heart with self Compassion

March 8, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 4:30 pm

Content of day:
It will be a day of pausing, resting and ease.
The structure and practices during the day are influenced by the teachings of the Tara Brach, Jack Kornfield and my 25 years of meditation practice.

The day will unfold gently with invitations to come back to the body with acceptance, care and gratitude with movement, guided meditation, walking meditation and a short meditation talk.
The invitation is to move out of the head to embrace the whole body with our heart .

“Lunch will be with silence and later with chat and Cake.”

The afternoon will begin with some gentle movements, relaxation, a short talk on how to take care of our difficult emotions with the meditation practice called RAIN, a guided meditation practice and a q&a session.


Other Information.

It will be a bring your own lunch day, tea, coffee and cake provided. (If you need to be bribed to book, I can promise the cake will be delicious.)

This day is part of my meditation teacher training certification with Buddhist meditation teachers Jack Kornfield and Tara brach. I’m more than half way through their certification program. The day will be similar and different to the days of mindfulness in the tradition of Plum Village.

Please Note.

As part of my certification process I am required to video part of my talk, a guided meditation and a question and answer session and participants are asked to fill in an evaluation for afterwards. The short period of videoing will be on me, not the participants. I will feel the pressure of that camera 🙂 .

I have been guiding meditation, leading meditation evening, offering days of meditation and supporting retreats since 1999.
