Event description
A short course over 3 Thurs evenings and a Saturday morning exploring self-judgement

About this Event

The voice of the ‘inner critic’ or ‘inner judge’ can be a strong presence in our lives, but we can learn to develop practices and pathways that support us to meet it with compassion and clarity.

This course will offer pointers for recognising and negotiating with the critic, and include stories of early buddhist practitioners encountering Mara - the personification of self-judgment.

Suitable for anyone, but you may find it useful to have previous experience of meditation or mindfulness. Please get in touch if you have any questions about whether it’s the right thing for you at the moment.

About Tickets

Booking

We request that people book places for themselves. If you are booking for yourself and someone else you must make a separate booking for each person, with an email address for each

Fees

We charge a retreat fee to cover costs of venues, teachers’ expenses, ongoing administrative costs and maintaining a Retreatant Support Fund. We offer a standard, supported, and sponsor rate. A freely given rate is also available so that no-one is excluded.

The teaching is offered freely in accordance with the Insight Meditation tradition. During the retreat you will be invited to make a voluntary contribution (Dana) for the teachings. Please read more about Dana .

Dana

Dana can be translated as cultivating generosity or giving. The teachers who lead our retreats receive their travel costs and ‘out-of-pocket’ expenses but do not receive any payment for their teaching. However they are happy to receive voluntary contributions from participants in the events they lead. These offerings are traditionally called dana. Most of our teachers depend on dana for most or all of their livelihood.

Our teachers are following an ancient tradition, offering teachings freely just as they received them freely from a previous generation of teachers. In this way the dharma (the teachings of the Buddhist tradition) is not made an object of commerce, and the relationship between teacher and student is based upon trust, freedom, and mutual generosity.

If you attend one of our events and appreciate what the teacher has offered, we warmly invite you to make whatever contribution you feel appropriate. If you do so, you will be making a vital contribution to their livelihood and helping them to continue teaching on this generous basis, particularly in situations where people cannot afford to pay anything.
