“The Importance and Place of Meditation in the Modern World”.
Are you struggling with the pace of our modern world? Living and working in today’s society tends to perpetuate a ongoing struggle with balancing family, work and social commitments and leaves us little time to reflect upon life and find some sense of meaning and peace. As much as we may have the sincere intent to find calm and meditate, we often find ourselves challenged to sit still on a regular basis. The importance and place of mindfulness meditation for leading a balanced and fulfilling life is especially relevant today as it ever has been.
This half-day meditation retreat workshop offers you the opportunity to take a moment in life to find an island of stillness. Listen to special guest speaker, Bhante Sujato, Abbott of Santi Forest Monastery in Bundanoon, talk about how mindfulness meditation can be applied to the everyday living experiences we are challenged with and how to find regular place for it in your life. As well as being a meditator and teacher, Bhante Sujato is a scholar of early Buddhism, with several books and essays of original and often ground-breaking research.
Structure: The workshop will be a meditative retreat offering several sessions of meditation interlaced with reflections by Bhante Sujato.
