Being Your Own Best Friend

LISTING > Meditation, Personal Development Retreat in Other

This will be a silent weekend meditation retreat focussing on the theme of our relationship with ourselves: what does “being our own best friend” mean?  Can we be at ease simply being who we are without needing to be particularly special, better or worse than anyone else?  Can we similarly be at peace with others who are different to us without being critical and judgmental? We will explore these questions using insights from the Buddha’s teachings on what keeps us trapped in cycles of negativity and how This we can restore ourselves to a more natural state of ease and wellbeing. There will be periods of sitting and walking meditation, morning and evening talks, and opportunities for dialogue and discussion.

Feedback:Still Clear Water - Transformation through Mindfulness

Thank you for inviting us to serve in a very special way – the kitchen provided a special place for our personal retreat – Anthony & Jennifer – who cooked at the Easter retreat 2018.

Gratitude is a word that does not begin to convey the inch I leave with. Snakes, lizards, vultures anve reminded me I exist. Much love to the mountain for abiding with me in joy and chitter chatter. Nolitha & Chandasara your dance is spellbinding, crystal clear and moved me. I use inch as a metaphor for this journey in which practice makes practice. Martin the Saint of Dharmagiri, the candles were so pretty tonight. Thanks for the guided walks, they make my heart clap – Lorna.

Thank you for the gift of this place, for the teachings, the love, the support. It’s been a wonderful time! – Andrew
