About the Retreat
Meditation on the nature of the mind is practised in all Buddhist traditions.
In the Tibetan tradition that will be presented in this course, one first concentrates on the clarity and awareness of the mind, a bit like a mirror becoming self-conscious, and then moves into a much deeper experience of freedom from our habitual patterns in which the mirror recognises its own emptiness.
This is a profound method to realise liberation and enlightenment. Like success in any venture, it depends upon following the steps laid out by those who have already realised it.
From relative newcomers to Buddhist meditation to those very familiar with mahamudra, this retreat is a great opportunity to deepen your practice. Each day is broken into a series of short sessions, supported by daily gentle mindful exercises that enable one to maintain the quality of the experience without getting over-exhausted.
There are opportunities to meet with Roy, the retreat leader, in order to obtain personal guidance and support with the practice.
This is the fifth Nature of Mind retreat led by Roy at Land of Joy. Feedback from previous years’ retreats has been extremely positive.
