A sanctuary in difficult times
In these unprecedented times of radical change and uncertainty, a new world is being born. Courage and compassionate presence strengthen us to face into the chaos and not turn away. With wisdom and determination,we can move forward together to create a world based on justice, kindness and shared resources rather than on greed, hatred and delusion. The practices of Insight Meditation support our inherent capacity to awaken to wisdom and open heartedness. In attending to our own suffering, we realise that our personal welfare and happiness is intimately connected to the well-being of all life. This silent retreat is suitable for both those new to meditation and
those with experience.
