mindfulness and the path to freedom

Friday, 8 April 2016 to Friday, 15 April 2016
2016

Far from just a means of relaxation, the Buddha’s teaching of mindfulness can bring new levels of meaning, direction and joy to our lives. On this retreat we will be exploring some of the most relevant teachings for modern life, and how we can directly put them into practice. We will be doing some light physical movement of Qi Gong to help us inhabit our bodies more fully.
