Befriending the Mind.

One common misperception of meditation is that it aims to stop thinking. However, the aim of insight meditation is to develop a more skilful relationship to every aspect of our experience, including our thoughts and emotions.

During this one-day workshop, we will explore ways to befriend the mind, to let go of unhelpful mental habits, and to cultivate helpful ones: states of heart and mind that lead to greater ease, happiness, and freedom.

Most of the day will be spent practising silent sitting and walking meditation, with some guided meditation, dyad (pairs) meditation, and opportunities for individual meetings with the teacher.

This retreat is suitable for people who have some familiarity with mindfulness and/or insight meditation practice.

Note: no door sales.

In support of your own and the group's meditation, please plan to arrive on time and stay for the entire day.

*Dana

The ticket price covers only the cost of venue hire and other expenses associated with the cost of offering the workshop, including a contribution to Jill's airfares.

In most Buddhist traditions the teachers are not paid to teach. Instead, the teachings are given on a 'dana' basis – dana being the Pali word for generosity or giving freely. At the end of the course, participants are invited to reciprocate this generosity by offering dana to support the teacher. Jill is an independent meditation teacher and is not financially supported by any meditation centre or Buddhist organisation. She relies on dana for her livelihood and pays for all the expenses incurred in offering a retreat, including some international airfares, herself.
