Understand Your Mind
In Person @Bolton Abbey Village Hall, N Yorks
Sunday 20th June, 9.30am – 5pm
A second Retreat day in the peace and tranquility of the Yorkshire Dales. Unlock the hidden secrets of your mind by engaging in powerful guided meditations to let go of busy thoughts, anxieties and frustration.
A day retreat is an opportunity to gain a deep understanding of Buddha’s teachings and have a special experience of inner peace.
Although we are generally aware of whether we are happy or distressed, most people have no clear understanding about what his or her mind actually is or how it functions. We find it nearly impossible to keep our mind positive and happy throughout even a whole day because one moment we are happy, and in the next moment we can become anxious or irritated.
During this Retreat we will learn how to recognize, and let go of harmful states of mind and replace them with peaceful and beneficial ones. We can eventually maintain a light, positive mind throughout each and every day. Ultimately, if we remove all our harmful states of mind, we will definitely experience permanent inner peace regardless of how bad our external circumstances may be.
The purpose of this day retreat is to develop deeper insight into the nature and power of our mind through practical teachings and guided meditations. This insight or wisdom will bring great meaning to our life and help us to effect deep internal transformation.
A packed lunch is included and there will be time in between retreat sessions, if you wish, to enjoy and relax in the surrounding countryside.
The cost of the day retreat is £30 (Centre Membership Scheme £20).
