Transformative Mindfulness offers easy-to-learn self-healing tools for leading a healthier and happier life. These tools are simple, effective, and suitable for people of all ages, cultures, and traditions. They are designed to enable you to:
· generate awareness and acceptance of your own mental and physical challenges
· directly access the underlying psychological causes that contribute to the mental or physical suffering that you may be experiencing
· compassionately transform these causes, in a way that works best for each individual
Guided meditations, visualisation, drawing, and mindful acceptance practices support this wonderful weekend of transformation. When skilfully combined these techniques bring insight and change, help build strengths, bring perspective to difficult situations and transform inner conflicts.
By breaking open our power of compassion, the underlying causes of our difficulties can be viewed very differently. Profound change can occur! Follow up workshops throughout the year to support and deepen your practice.
Please bring along a yoga mat and blanket for relaxation. Beginners are welcome.
Saturday 21 April 9.00 am - Sunday 22 April 4.00 pm, at the Wellbeing Centre at Chenrezig Institute. Facility fee $150. Meals and accommodation available separately.

Ruth Donnelly is a Buddhist Psychotherapist in Maleny. She runs self-care and training groups using Transformative Mindfulness and Dru Yoga, offering people simple ways to care for and transform their own lives, and the lives of people they live and work with.
Established 1974, Chenrezig Institute is a centre for Buddhist study, meditation, retreat and practice nestled in the foothills of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. The Institute is home to a Tibetan Geshe (Lama), a large community of ordained Sangha (monks and nuns), students, residents, volunteers, retreat goers and guests.
Apart from the formal study programmes, Chenrezig Institute is a peaceful, calm and relaxing place to spend a few hours, days or weeks. Stroll along the bush paths, wander in formal garden, espresso in the cafe or a vegetarian meal.
