About the event
Some say the whole purpose of meditation is to restore balance by letting go of the harmful habits that cause us suffering. We can learn to change the ones that are unhelpful and shift our attitude in a helpful direction.
This course will be practice and experience based. We will be exploring new horizons within our minds to help us accept and transform those habits that limit our freedom. We will see how many of our harmful habits arise from an "innocent mistake" whereby we take everything too personally, too self-importantly.
Through mainstream exercises including those of self-compassion, we can awaken a fearless and mature attitude, We'll use meditation as a method to let go of what is not useful and to adopt what is healthy in our lives.
These teachings and exercises will be partly based on Akong Rinpoche's books, "Taming the Tiger" and "Restoring the Balance". Each day will begin at 10am and end at 4pm. A more detailed daily schedule will be shared with registered participants ahead of the event.
