About the event

“Pain is inevitable; suffering is optional.” The weekend will incorporate visualisation, breathing methods and meditation exercises. These exercises will help us accept inevitable pain and challenge our resistances, which cause us unnecessary sufferings. Meditation can help us both care for our health and improve our quality of life.

One secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, worry about the future, or anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment; wisely and earnestly. So, we will learn how to " bring a kind and precise attention to all of our experiences.” We will learn skills on how to respond directly to our inner and outer “weather.” We can liberate ourselves from being slaves to moods or feelings that come and go like clouds and can damage our health. Cultivating such awareness could have a direct benefit to our well-being.

Simple instructions on Self-compassion will be given which can help us overcome shame and low self-esteem.
