Hills Retreat - 4-6 October 2024


Event description

Retreat gives us the opportunity to relax, unwind and gain a deeper experience of meditation and inner peace.

“When the turbulence of distracting thoughts subsides and our mind becomes still a deep happiness and contentment naturally arises from within”
Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche

On our October Hills Retreat enjoy the experience of the spacious and clear nature of your mind. Our mind always has the potential to be peaceful, clear, spacious and positive. All thoughts, feelings and mental activity arise from within the clarity of our mind and dissolve back in just like waves in the ocean. Not understanding this we often feel stuck in unhelpful habits of thought and relate to our mind as fixed and unchanging in its negativity and painful feelings. 

Through meditating on the clarity of our mind we learn to simply observe our thoughts allowing them to dissolve back into the clarity of our mind. In this way we gradually perceive only clarity, our mind becomes unusually lucid and clear and we enjoy the vast spacious feeling of our limitless mind. Abiding there this experience naturally gives rise to deep peace and contentment.
