meditation retreat for beginners:
shortcuts to happiness
Meditation Retreat in English
Saturday 7th September
10:00 – 16:30
about the retreat
We can train ourselves to be happy. The key is to learn to identify those states of mind that produce unhappiness and tightness, such as anger and attachment and to replace them gradually with flexible, skillful, peaceful minds such as acceptance, confidence and love.
In this day retreat we will learn and experience meditations that give rise to inner peace and happiness that does not depend upon external conditions.
