23rd January, 1:00pm-4:00pm, £30. Online with Dawn Lister
Learn to be peaceful and compassionate in troubling times.
Gentle introduction into an afternoon of silence and process of enquiry.
Practise of various sitting, moving, eating, and prone meditations.
Plenty of space around the meditations with time to reflect, be still and or journal.
We will be exploring both how to learn to be with uncomfortable emotions and sensations, and how to develop self-compassion within the container of mindful awareness.
Spoken and shared enquiry for those who wish to discuss their experience of practising in silence. What was thrown up for you, what felt comfortable or uncomfortable, what you learnt, how the container of silence enhanced the experience of the meditations.
All practises are led by Dawn Lister and are voice led. With periods of silence before and after meditation practises.
Who benefits from this retreat?
The event is for all people who have some experience of mindfulness. Those wishing to deepen their practise and explore deeply their relationship between thought and feelings. To reveal the habitual patterns of thought and subsequent actions and how that impacts on us. To create a stronger meditation practise. If you are considering a silent retreat of some length this is a great introduction to the practise of stillness and silence.
