the mindful heart: women's meditation retreat
Pasadini has been a practicing Buddhist/meditator since Y2K. She enjoys the simplicity, intimacy and honesty that meditation is/requires of her, and feels deeply honoured to be able to introduce others to meditation, and Buddhist practice. She lived at Dhanakosa for two years, and now stays in Glasgow full time with her wife and dog, and leads retreats at Dhanakosa several times a year.
Originally hailing from Eastern Canadian shores, but having spent her whole adult life in the US, until 2012, she will forgive you if you think she sounds American. Its like totally totally awesome dude.
Viryadevi lives in Glasgow and has been meditating for 33 years. She has spent the last few years supporting adults with learning disability and training on a Dharma-based counselling course which have both challenged her to develop more heart connection in meditation and daily life.
Regulars - Meditation
Suitable for people who have been on retreat before and have a regular meditation practice. These retreats will be conducted mostly in silence, and will normally have between 5 and 7 hours a day of sitting meditation.
Become more intimate with your heart/mind. We follow the direct advice of the Buddha how to practise drawing closer to our experience. This took him to the liberation of insight and he assures us if we practise with sincerity and an open heart, we can find that freedom too.
Practising together we find the support to witness and engage with ourselves with love and kindness. Join us!
