Join us to learn two fundamental, far-reaching meditation practices, while living communally with diverse but like-minded people, explore the Buddhist vision of reality. An ideal way to encounter meditation and Buddhism for the first time, to experience the power of retreats and the larger perspective that they can bring.
We teach two Buddhist meditation practices: Mindfulness of Breathing, for developing awareness, integration and clarity of mind; and Development of Loving Kindness (Mettā Bhāvanā”), which brings about a gentle but radical transformation of our emotional world. We will help you to set up in good posture and give a fully led practice, so there is no need for any previous experience.
Along with practical instruction we'll give some background on where meditation fits into the bigger picture of Buddhist practice and worldview.
As well as time for practice and discussion with like-minded friends, there will also be plenty of time to relax and enjoy the idyllic setting of Strathean Retreat Centre.
Open to everyone under 35 years old. Facebook: wellingtonyoungbuddhists
