Meditation, Mindfulness and Making Life Meaningful

With Ven Amy Miller: 16-19th June 2017

This retreat is for anyone interested in creating a better life for him or herself, family, community and wider society. By becoming a fuller individual, we have more to offer others, and may enjoy the spirit of togetherness with those around us. This gives us energy and vitality.

Venerable Amy is a popular American nun with a down-to-earth, humorous and delightful warmth in communicating the essence of the buddhist path. Of the retreat she herself says,

Bring more calm and joy to your life with a consistent meditation practice; discover resources within you that lend to more mindful approaches to everyday living.

Meditation instruction and practice was offered along with insightful techniques for de-stressing and inviting more gratitude and compassion into your life.

This retreat will appeal to people from all backgrounds and levels of experience in meditation.

About Ven Amy

Her teaching style emphasizes a practical approach to integrating Buddhist philosophy into everyday life. She is happy to help people connect with meditation and mindfulness in an effort to gain a refreshing perspective on normally stressful living.
