"Melting the Frozen Sea" - One-day silent meditation retreat with Jess Huon and Assistant Teacher Robyn Gibson
Saturday 9th December 2017, 9:30am - 4:30pm, Fryerstown (near Castlemaine)
It appears we have choice in the ways we relate with our experience. The Buddha's teaching is centred around offering artful ways to be with our experience - allowing 'life' to unfreeze and flow, rather than solidifying and compounding inherent 'suffering.'
On this day we unpack and de-mystify the Buddha's teachings on the Twelve Links. The Twelve Links provide a clear and brilliant map that evoke the wheels of suffering, in motion. These teachings assist us in seeing at what exact point we can 'turn our life around' - un-knotting and un-tying the burdens of the past.
Venue: Fryerstown School, 5 Camp Street, Fryerstown (near Castlemaine)
Cost: $40 plus dana for Jess's teachings
Events and Retreats - 2018
"Deep Rest in Nature" - 4 day meditation retreat with Anton Eastick and Holly Huon
Wednesday 10th January - Monday 14th January 2018, Yarra Junction
Meditation and deep rest in nature allows us to come out of the mind, into the heart and in tune with our senses. Not only is it rejuvenating and healing, but it's also transformative. By giving up the effort to meditate right or to be a good meditator, we can open into what one nature researcher called "soft fascination".
Camp Eureka, Yarra Junction
$230 for a hut or $200 for camping plus dana for the teachers
