Deepening Your Meditation
A truly unique opportunity to experience the deep natural peace and clarity of profound meditation.
Based upon the book Meditation – an In-Depth Guide, this immersion is highly suited to people who have already have some meditation and power of mind experience and would like to explore the depth and breadth of it all.
The focus of this retreat will be on practising together. The guided practice sessions will be of medium intensity, running mostly in 40 minute blocks, and will be interspersed with teaching sessions, question and discussion sessions, walking meditations, optional yoga, noble silence and time for personal reflection and rest.
In the daily teaching session, Ian will present a complete overview of how the mind works in a way that is directly relevant to meditation, and will further explain techniques that help us to go beyond engagement with the busy, active mind.
Learn, practise and experience the heart of meditation and the bliss and contentment that comes with deep, natural peace. Break through into a deeper level of relaxation and clarity of mind.
This program is well suited to health professionals and meditation teachers interested in the deeper experiences of meditation, and learning how to introduce them to others.
Certificates of attendance can be provided.
