Description

Introduction to Mindfulness with Patrick Kearney in Canberra

PUBLIC TALK | FRIDAY 29 MARCH 2019 | 7.30pm- 9.00pm

'Striving, stress & relaxation'

In our ordinary, workaday world we are expected to be productive and efficient. Hard work is extolled as a virtue. Our work gives us the opportunity to express ourselves and to support us and those around us. Yet this very striving creates stress that reduces the quality of our lives. We find that making the effort to get through the day creates tension that remains with us when we are no longer working. Do the Buddha’s teachings apply to this situation? In this talk Patrick will discuss the Buddha’s own experience of the conflict between striving and relaxation, and how he resolved it. We will also experiment with some brief meditation exercises to find a felt sense of what he is talking about.

  • Cost: $10.

WEEKEND WORKSHOP | SAT 30th - SUN 31st MARCH 2019 | 9.30am- 4.30pm

In this non-residential workshop Patrick will introduce you to the practice of mindfulness as it was understood by the Buddha. It is designed for beginners and experienced practitioners. We will continue our exploration of the dynamics between striving and relaxation, to discover a practical path to sustained but relaxed awareness. This approach will be supported by practices of awareness of the body that lead to relaxation, mindfulness and self-compassion.

Participants should wear loose and comfortable clothing, suitable for yoga/bodywork.

Participants should also bring their cushions and other preferred supports for meditation practice. Chairs will be available.

Costs:

  • $120 full weekend ($100 concession or early bird if book before 31 Jan 2019).

  • $50 Saturday only

  • $65 Friday evening & Saturday

  • Morning tea will be provided

  • Lunches: byo or catering will be offered - information will be provided at a later date
