A weekend course on mindfulness and meditation, and how they can help reduce stress and increase mental focus and compassion. There will be a combination of theory and guided practice throughout the weekend.
There will be some basic explanations of the neuroscience of meditation, and how practice improves the chemistry of our brain and body. Research shows that through meditation we can reduce the body’s overload of cortisol, the stress hormone, and increase the production of oxytocin which is connected to feelings of happiness and unconditional love.
There will be teachings on how to integrate mindfulness into our work life, through training in micro-moments of awareness throughout even a busy day, as well as how to increase compassion and a sense of connection to others. We will look at how meditation improves our sense of inner joy, where happiness becomes a choice, and is therefore the cause rather than the result of our experiences.
From January 2015 all our Dharma and meditation courses will be offered without a suggested course fee.
In the Buddhist tradition one practices generosity, or Dana, by making monetary offerings for the teachings. This generosity is not payment for goods or services rendered; it is an offering given freely from the heart in appreciation of the Dharma.
