Daylong Meditation Retreat w/ Martin Aylward
Sun 2 April 2017, 10:00 – 16:00 BST
Going Against the Stream: Cultivating Wisdom, Compassion and Peace from the Inside Out.
2500 years ago, Buddha called this a revolutionary practice; Training the mind and freeing the heart, turning against the streams of greed, negativity and confusion that we see habitually affecting both our own inner lives, and driving the dominant forces of society.
Martin will guide a day of teachings and practices exploring these currents and habits, pointing to a deepening understanding of how they operate and how we can work with them in a way that both conduces to inner freedom and ease, and makes a wise and effective response to the world we live in. Suitable for both beginning and experienced meditators, the day will include guided and silent meditations, teaching reflections, and discussion and exploration with Martin.
Martin began dharma practice in 1990, aged 19. He spent several years in Asian monasteries and with Himalayan hermits before co-founding the Moulin Retreat Centre in south-west France, where he has been resident teacher for the last 20 years.
