I am offering a face 2 face Retreat Day on Saturday 21 August 10.00 am – 3.00 pm.
Queens Hall Hall Row Charlestown Dunfermline Fife KY11 3EG .
The venue is a very large, spacious, airy, open, light and quiet room.
There is a lot of space for safe social distancing during the day, with the sea and woods directly outside to walk
The invitation will be to rest in awareness so that we might become familiar with the qualities of awareness, and cultivate kindness for the phenomenon that passes through the mind.
“We have this pristine, clear, luminous awareness when we are happy and when we are sad, when we are angry or depressed, or when we are joyful and energetic. Awareness is not tied to emotions or thoughts. It’s not contingent on circumstances or conditions. Connecting with this awareness is essential for understanding what we mean by our ‘basic goodness’. This awareness has no solidity, no fixity, and no measurement, yet it remains the ground of our being. We have this awareness no matter how chaotic or preoccupied our mind is, no matter how much the monkey mind controls the show. This is why we say we do not need to get rid of our negative thoughts or push them away. If we bring conscious awareness to the forefront of mental activities, the monkey mind automatically loses its power” (Mingyur Rinpoche 2014)
We will have two tea breaks and 45 minutes for lunch.
The cost would be £30.00.
