Mindfulness and Four Heart Qualities


6-11th April 2018
Mindfulness & The Four heart Qualities
A Silent Retreat with Malcom Huxter and Monique Leverington
At www.lokananda.com.au 9 Main St, POINT PASS SA

In mindfulness and still-ness we can cultivate the heart qualities of loving kindness, compassion, appreciative joy and equanimity. These mutually supportive states enable us to transform psychological and interpersonal suffering. A growing body of scientific evidence supports the health and relationship benefits of training in mindfulness, compassion and loving kindness. Recent therapeutic and educational approaches such as Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), Cultivating Emotional Balance (CEB), Mindful Self Compassion (MSC), Positive Neuroplasticity Training (PNT) and MBSR (mindfulness based stress reduction) are gaining popularity with therapists and educators. We will focus on skills development guidance, meditation practice, mindful movement and space for integration and rest.
Anyone with some experience in meditation is welcome. This retreat is suitable for both personal and professional development for the lay practitioner, therapists, health professionals and educators.
Fee: $450 + Dana (3 nights) & $650 + Dana (5 nights)
The fee for the retreat includes the following: food /accommodation/ and contribute to the teachers’ (Malcolm Huxter & Monique Leverington) accommodation and travel costs. In accordance with Buddhist traditions the teachings are given freely. The fee for the teaching is dana based. Dana refers to the economy of generosity where those who receive the teaching have the opportunity to reciprocate with a financial gift that they feel is suitable, after the retreat has finished.
