About the Weekend

We can change our partners, change our looks and change our homes to give us a sense of starting afresh and welcoming new experiences into our lives. Unfortunately, because these changes are external they often lead to similar discontentment somewhere down the line, and renewed efforts to find something else to satisfy our desires.  

During this weekend we will consider how changing mental and emotional habits and tendencies can transform our lives and fulfil us in a way that does not rely on the volatile and uncertain circumstances of our lives, but continues to deepen and fulfil us as we draw on our inner strength and unique personal reservoirs of wellbeing. 

Concepts covered:

  • The nature of the mind

  • Using mindful awareness in our everyday lives

  • Meditation for self- awareness

  • Genuine happiness

  • Emotional intelligence and resilience

This course will be presented in a workshop style and include teaching, discussion, meditations and relaxation.
