Traditionally the New Year is a time for making a fresh start and seeing what direction we would like our life to take.
This retreat is an ideal opportunity to reflect on our priorities and to begin the coming year in a way in tune with our natural wish for true happiness and well-being.
The essence of developing a spiritual approach to life is learning to embrace any situation as an opportunity to become more aware, genuine and open-hearted. During this retreat we will focus on the practices of meditation, loving-kindness and compassion which help us to do this.
These exceptionally skilful methods show us how to work with our minds and hearts, and connect us with a wiser and more authentic way of being. In an inspiring and supportive retreat environment we can begin to familiarise ourselves with these qualities so that we begin to embody them and can apply them to help us to face and overcome difficulties in our daily life .
The retreat will include video teachings by Sogyal Rinpoche, presentations, guided meditation, personal reflection, discussions and time to enjoy the natural beauty of Dzogchen Beara.
