If we examine ourselves every day with mindfulness … a possibility for change and self-improvement can open within us.” HH Dalai Lama.
Cultivating mindfulness sets the stage for improving our lives. It is the basic ingredient of all other practices and creates the stability needed to make a radical transformation. There are many different techniques suitable for all types of people and this retreat will introduce a wide range of approaches allowing people to choose the ones they find most effective.
Drawing heavily on his connection with Alan Wallace, Corey will combine clear discussion with both silent and guided meditation. Learn to relax in the face of stress, understand its causes and develop habits that lead to happiness. Take a weekend to unplug, unwind and learn powerful tools for transforming our lives.
Friday 15th March 6.30 pm - Sunday 17th March 3.00 pm, held in the Wellbeing Centre at Chenrezig Institute.
Facility fee $108
Accommodation and meals available separately. Corey recommends guests stay on site so they can participate in morning and evening meditation sessions.
