3: To develop a new attitude to stress and a commitment to change.
4: To effectively let go of habitual reactions.
5: To build confidence, to explore yourself ever more deeply and to face what you’ve been avoiding.
6: To cultivate empathy and share yourself more freely.

Sorry, no drop-ins; your commitment is part of the process, although most people miss a session or two.

How Workshops Work

We explore each topic in a series of ninety-minute sessions. Each one includes:
—three or four five-minute periods of guided meditation;
—about forty minutes of discourse about techniques and attitude;
—a half-hour of question & answer.

You sit on mats with cushions or on upright chairs, as you prefer; we want you to be comfortable. Chairs are provided; bring your own mat, blanket or cushion to sit on the floor. We work with experience, not theory; concentration and reflection are natural features of your mind, to be strengthened by practice and commitment. We do not practice chanting or bowing and you aren’t asked to believe or disbelieve anything. Exercises include basic breath awareness, concentration exercises, body scans and the occasional visualization.

We keep our fees to a minimum to make workshops accessible to all. Please commit to the process by paying in full, in advance: cheques to be sent promptly; last-minute payments in cash.

Please also reserve for me the following books:

Why I Became a Buddhist Monk, Why I Quit and What I Learned

Disillusioned by Western culture and middle-class values, Stephen Schettini sets out in search of life's purpose, and discovers the world of Tibetan Buddhism. In this lyrical and affecting memoir, Schettini ruthlessly questions his spiritual pretensions and, after eight years as a monk, discovers the extraordinary power of self-reliance.

The Art of Mindful Reflection

As we grow up, we first form ourselves and then engage with the world outside. However, we then tend to stay put, busy and stressed; we lose touch with our roots and our real potential. The path of Mindful Reflection reminds and encourages us to return, to keep exploring and to keep rediscovering ourselves.
