During the day, we will practice meditations that help us to be aware of what is happening in our own hearts and minds and to sense our innate potential for wisdom, openness and compassion. We will explore ways to creatively respond to the patterns, habits and obstacles that appear to obscure these beautiful qualities.
The day will be held in silence to help us explore the practices in depth and will include guided sitting and walking meditations, a talk about the principles of meditation, and opportunities to ask questions. It will led by Jake Dartington.
The retreat will run from 9.30 to 4.30pm on Saturday February 17th.
Who is it for?
While beginners are welcome, it is most suitable for people with some experience of meditation practice.When
Where will it be held?
The retreat will be held at the Bahia Yoga Studio, 4 Stoney St, Nottingham NG1 1LG. This venue is in the heart of Nottingham and the retreat will be an opportunity to find stillness in the midst of a busy urban environment.
What should I bring?
Yoga bolsters and blocks are available to use at the studio. There will also be plenty of chairs to sit on. If you prefer to bring your own meditation cushion or stool please do so. Please bring a packed lunch.
The cost of the day is £12 + dana.
The Pail word dana is associated with giving and generosity. Over the centuries, Buddhist teachings have been passed on in a spirit of generosity. Traditionally, monks and nuns offered their teachings freely and were supported through gifts of food, clothing, medicine and shelter. In the Insight Meditation tradition in the West, no fixed fee is charged for the teaching. At the end of retreats, participants are invited to offer donations to support the teacher in being able to offer teachings in this way.
