Meditation can help us both care for our health and improve our quality of life. The teachings will be based on the Tibetan forms of therapy (tso-wa” meaning to heal wounds already there and trying to prevent future wounds occurring). The week will incorporate visualisation, walking meditations, breathing methods and certain physical exercises.
We will learn how “to bring a kind and precise attention to all of our experience” and how to respond directly to our inner and outer “weather” and not be slaves to moods or feelings that come and go like clouds. Cultivating such awareness could have a direct benefit to our health.
The “Four Healing Powers” will also be shared: – these are helpful and healing images, words, feeling and encouraging confidence. They have been taught successfully for hundreds of years in Tibet but are not so well known in the west. Using visualisations, we can cultivate our ability to relax and gain internal access to support, especially to help when times are difficult. Self-compassion can also help us overcome shame and low self-esteem.
There will be a day of silence in the middle of the retreat.
