This 2 day residential Level 1 course will explore key attitudes for developing a mindful culture in our family and community; in education, health care, or business.
The focus will be on mindfulness, enquiry and ethics using the 16 Guidelines which provide a framework for reflecting on the ways we think, speak, act and find meaning in life.
This workshop is suitable for people of all faiths and cultural traditions. As well as meditation there will be interactive exercises, the opportunity for walks and time for relaxed discussion.
The 16G programme was developed by the Foundation for the Development of Compassion and Wisdom (FDCW), whose patron is HH Dalai Lama. Recommended reading is 16 Guidelines for Life by Alison Murdoch and Dekyi-Lee Olderdshaw. For more details about the 16G go to www.16guidelines.org
