From Mindfulness to Heartfulness: A Two Day Silent Meditation Retreat With Marjó Oosterhoff
Happening over two days Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th of October from 10 -4pm
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.
Marjó Oosterhoff will be facilitating this retreat. She is manager and resident teacher of Passaddhi Retreat Centre in West Cork . She has been practising mindfulness and loving kindness meditation for many years, and in 1995 was authorised by her teachers to teach retreats in the West.
In her teaching style Marjó emphasises that there is nothing we need to add to or take away from what is already here. She will gently guide the participants to a place of compassionate awareness.
This retreat will be suitable for beginners and non-beginners, for people of all religious backgrounds or none, and offers an introduction to mindfulness and compassion practices, and a deepening for those who already practise meditation, in whatever form.
