Introduction to Mindfulness at Samye Ling
Introduction to Mindfulness Retreat Weekend at Samye Ling
Over the last few years there has been increasing interest in mindfulness; the ability we all have to come into the present moment, with an attitude of acceptance and kindness towards ourselves. Our experience of this moment can include becoming aware of our thoughts and feelings, as well as our awareness of our sensations in the body.
This weekend will offer a gentle, experiential introduction to mindfulness, in the beautiful surroundings of Samye Ling. Over the weekend, we will explore what mindfulness is, and learn different practices to help us settle our minds. We will also come home to our bodies through grounding practices such as the bodyscan and mindful walking. In all these practices, we will learn to cultivate an attitude of kindness towards ourselves, which lies at the heart of our mindfulness training.
While this weekend acts as a stand-alone introduction to mindfulness, for anyone that would like to engage in more in-depth mindfulness training, this weekend also forms the first module of our four-module, Level 1: Being Present course.
This weekend is suitable for those completely new to mindfulness as well as anyone who would like to reconnect with it and embark on the different training pathways the Mindfulness Association has to offer.
