Waking up to this Life… it’s not a rehearsal.
“Waking up to who you are
requires letting go
of who you imagine yourself to be.”
~ Alan Watts ~
A day-long retreat exploring some Buddhist principles and practices for waking up to everyday life; particularly – but not exclusively – for awakening from addictions and compulsions; and some practices for healing the Heart-Mind in everyday life.
Everyone on the Buddhist path is waking up – or in recovery – from greed, from hatred and from delusion; these are the inherent pre-conditions, biases and distortions of all human beings. For some of us these factors manifest in our lives – to a greater or lesser degree – as particular cravings or aversions, or as a sense of unwholeness and disquiet; and always these mind-states are accompanied by an awful lot of confusion!
This retreat will be a day of talks, sitting practice and (weather permitting) walking practice devoted to recovery in the Buddhist sense of ‘Waking Up’. We will practice some silent meditation; and some Loving-kindness and Forgiveness practice.
