I just want to hang out in a meditative environment
Never meditated before? Not sure how to meditate? Don’t worry, the easiest way to meditate is with others. Somehow, we fall into meditation, when everyone else is too. Let Mataji or Danni know if you are a real beginner… we’ll be gentle!
Not sure what sort of meditation this retreat will do? Well, principally stillness of mind. Why? Because consciousness is bigger than thinking, and it is very easy to plunge into it. However, if requested, we might lead another method from time to time.
I don’t want any spiritual hocus pocus Gosh.., what about being ok with reality? That’s the highest spirituality. But as a poet (TS Eliot) once said “mankind cannot bear very much reality” And there is an abundance of nature to contemplate
I want spirituality Same deal. How much reality can you bear?
Want mindfulness rather than meditation? Mindfulness is meditation while active. We eat mindfully, walk mindfully. and we can practice mindfulness as a form of meditation, starting with deep non-critical sensory awareness.
I’m a meditation teacher, what’s in this meditation retreat for me?
What do you teach? These days there is no single answer to “what does a meditation teacher teach?” You may find that you pick up something outside your current range. Or deepen your practice. Or share your insights with others. Or simply settle into deep peace!
Find out ways to keep yourself steady in awareness rather than reaction - learn the methods of still-mind meditation, and mindfulness in every day life. 6 week program. Morning session at 10.00am via Zoom
