Event description


Bringing Meditation & Mindfulness into Our World:

Reclaiming Freedom and Authenticity -
The Totality of Everyday Life

with Alan Clements

An evening Talk: Saturday August 5 7.30-9.00 pm

A one day Workshop: Sunday August 27 11.30am-5.30pm

After the huge success of Alan's visit in May, we are very pleased to host a return visit this August! Book early as it booked out last time.

"It is our instinct for freedom — the natural urge of the heart to liberate itself from all limitations, real or imagined — that compels us to engage life as a journey of awakening — a liberating dance with the imperfect present. That strange, contextual tapestry of life with everything, everywhere, called this moment now — a place pregnant with totality, endlessly conceiving and dying with both the basic and metaphysical forces of the universe. It is a sacred space, as terrifying and maddening as it is awe-inspiring and miraculous." - Alan Clements

Alan Clements is a former Buddhist monk who trained with the mindfulness meditation masters Mahasi Sayadaw and Sayadaw U Pandita in Burma for many years. He is an author and insight meditation and mindfulness teacher who focuses his presentations on those who wish to live a more conscious, mindful and passionate life in the world.

As a long time yoga practitioner, human rights activist, and creative stage artist, he connects yoga, activism and art with the timeless practices of meditation and mindfulness and calls it World Dharma and Inner Dharma Yoga. Alan leads workshops, retreats and mindful intelligence trainings in Canada, Burma, the US, and Australia.

Alan is also a political and spiritual satirist, and performs his one person show “Spiritually Incorrect” to audiences around the world as benefits to raise awareness of global human rights and to highlight the plight of political prisoners worldwide. His books, CDs and films include Instinct for Freedom, A Future to Believe In: Empowerment, Revolution and The Right To Be Free, The Dharma Beyond Buddhism, Spiritually Incorrect: Authoritarianism, Authenticity and Activism, and The Voice of Hope: Alan Clements in Conversation with Burma's Nobel Laureate Aung San Suu Kyi.

“Alan’s life is material for a legend. An intellectual artist, freedom fighter, former Buddhist monk, he shares his insights and experience with a passion rarely seen and even more rarely lived. He’ll make you think and feel in ways that challenge your entire way of being.”

— Catherine Ingram, In the Footsteps of Gandhi and Passionate Presence

The workshop will include both discussion and practice, with an emphasis on establishing a home practice.
