• Retreat Day - Wednesday 2nd May 2018 £25.00

    Buddhist meditation day. 'Inner and Outer Harmony'. - Jnanamitra

    We all know that it is possible to live in a spirit of harmony, awareness and love, but often something gets in the way and our life is far from that.

    Meditation engages directly with our mind by using our mind, and helps us to learn to welcome our entire experience and create harmonious community within ourselves and beyond. We've all heard of Mindfulness - in this retreat day we will also be learning about awareness itself and opening our hearts.

    I came to meditation in my youth hoping to find a secret to better health, as I had had a childhood of chronic asthma and eczema. I soon discovered that awareness could open into ways of being that I'd had no idea were possible, and since then Buddhism and meditation have become my life. I founded the Ipswich Buddhist Centre and have taught meditation to hundreds of people over the years, many of whom have gone on to become excellent teachers themselves, and many others have found their lives richer and more alive through regular practice.

    Now in my 60's, I love coming to beautiful Otley Hall, where I have an opportunity to meet new people who may not be able to get to the Ipswich Buddhist Centre, and to practice in such inspiring surroundings.
