Weds November 6th 7pm – Sun 10th 3pm, 2019 at Maitreya House Herefordshire
Meditation can be seen as a process of exploring our mind’s true nature; understanding what lies beneath our worries, internal chatter, self-image and preferences. To do this effectively means letting go into present moment experience – in particular letting go of identity and fixed views. It means learning to stay present to whatever arises with interest but equanimity. Then, as we become more familiar with innate, naked awareness, bringing it into our daily lives to strengthen our capacity for compassion, patience and joy.
After an orientation in Wednesday evening, the retreat will intersperse tranquillity meditation exercises with T’ai Ji practice, and with quiet times for personal practice inside and outside.
Simon will lead the retreat and the meditation sessions, whilst Ad will guide the T’ai Ji sessions. This retreat is designed for those with prior experience of meditation and mindfulness.
Whilst his teaching is secular, Simon has been a committed meditation practitioner in the Buddhist tradition for over 20 years, and was ordained in 2017. He continues to study the subject intensively, and has been teaching mindfulness and meditation since 2011, with a focus on workplace stress reduction.
Ad started his T’ai-Ji training in 1975 in The Netherlands and has been studying under Chungliang Al Huang since 1991. His approach to T’ai-Ji is a unique blend of mindfulness meditation and T’ai-Ji has evolved over a period of more than 30 years of meditation teaching both in the UK and abroad.
