Mindfulness and Meditation
In-Person @Bolton Abbey Village Hall, N Yorks
Saturday 19th June, 9.30am – 5pm
Clear your mind and dissolve your worries with mindfulness meditation in the Yorkshire Dales. We return to Bolton Abbey Village Hall for the first of 2 days of meditation retreat.
Training in mindfulness & concentration causes our distracting thoughts to subside, we become calm & a deep happiness and contentment naturally arises.
In the fast pace of our working and personal lives our attention is easily scattered by endless distractions. Training in mindfulness gives us the power to overcome disturbing thoughts and to stay focused on what brings us happiness. In this way we can understand how mindfulness can help us and can enjoy the peace of mind it brings. We will also learn how to train in mindfulness in daily life.
A day retreat is an opportunity to gain a deep understanding of Buddha’s teachings and have a special experience of inner peace.
A packed lunch & refreshments are included and there will be time in between retreat sessions, if you wish, to enjoy and relax in the surrounding countryside.
The cost of the day retreat is £30 (Centre Membership Scheme £20). THIS DAY RETREAT IS NOW FULL. WE STILL HAVE SPACE AVAILABLE FOR SUNDAY. PLEASE EMAIL IF YOU WISH TO BE ON THE WAITING LIST FOR SAT AS THINGS DO CHANGE.
This is a stand alone day retreat but you can if you wish, also attend the Day Retreat the next day entitled Understand Your Mind
