Meditation is a journey of bringing the mind into the heart. ‘Vipassana’ means seeing clearly. ‘Metta’ (loving kindness, heartfulness) practice cultivates our capacity for kindness and non-contentiousness. The combination of mindfulness and loving kindness is a powerful way to develop clarity, contentment and compassion, in the quiet environment of retreat as well as in the midst of the chaos of our every-day lives, and helps us to tap into our inner sources of kindness and wakefulness.
“There is a traditional saying that the mind takes its shape from what it rests upon; a modern version would be that the brain takes its shape from what the mind rests upon” Dr Rick Hanson, Neuroscientist.
This course is a mix of experiential exercises, mindfulness practices, input on how the brain and mind work in tandem, creative activities and group discussion.
You will learn:
The essence of positive neuroplasticity – how the brain changes as your mind changes
How to use your mind skilfully to embed resources in your brain
How to practice taking in the good for greater well-being
Growing strengths to better meet core needs of safety, satisfaction and connection
