Peace of mind and heart
led by Nick Carroll
“There are dozens of meditation techniques, but it all comes down to this - just let it all be.”
– Ajahn Chah
Our days of practice are an opportunity to slow down, be still and experience the sensations, emotions, and thought processes that arise in consciousness, and their relationship with each other. Not only can we observe all these phenomena, but we can also reflect on where it all arises, which brings us closer to the heart of our practice – Awareness itself – where we can wake up to Peace of Mind and Heart

Structure to the day
The day will start with an optional early morning sitting meditation. You can start joining us at 6am and the morning puja and meditation will be from 6.30-7.30am. Then we will have a break for breakfast and restart the main programme for the day at 9.15am which will start with a short orientation talk at 9.25 am. The day finishes at 4.30pm.
The day includes periods of guided and silent meditation practice with a break around midday, followed by reflections on the theme and Q & A.
