In today’s busy world, we all experience the stress, pressures, and expectations of daily life – overconsumption, overwork, uncertainty and anxiety about the future. How can we touch peace and freedom in the midst of it all?
This workshop offers us time and space to come together to disengage from all the busyness and begin to reclaim our freedom.
With the tools of mindfulness practice, we will learn how to stop and listen more deeply to ourselves and others, to explore what binds us and what can make us more free.
Activities will consist of:
* Guided sitting meditation
* Talk by the monastics
* Walking meditation
* Deep relaxation
* Question & answer session
(See Mindfulness for an introduction to these practices)
From 20:00, there will be a mindful meal and time for hanging out. If you would like to join us, please bring some vegetarian food to share and your own cutlery.
