Meditation can help us both care for our health and improve our quality of life. The teachings will be based on the Tibetan forms of therapy ("tso-wa” meaning to heal wounds already there and trying to prevent future wounds occurring). The weekend will incorporate visualisation, breathing methods and meditation exercises from “Taming the Tiger”.
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 experience.” We will learn skills on how to respond directly to our inner and outer “weather” and not be slaves to moods or feelings that come and go like clouds. Cultivating such awareness could have a direct benefit to our health.
Traditionally the Buddhist teachings are given freely because they are considered priceless and those receiving the teachings practice generosity, or Dana, by making monetary offerings for the centre. This generosity is not payment for goods or services rendered; it is an offering given, freely from the heart, in appreciation for receiving the precious instructions that can help better one’s life and the lives of others.
Making a donation directly helps to provide all the necessary conditions for the study and practice of meditation and Buddhism, bringing teachers to teach and maintaining a spiritual community as well as contributing to the considerable expenses that are involved in running a centre. We are grateful for your support and hope to continue to provide a space of peace and calm dedicated to promoting world peace and good health of body and mind.
