The Fantastic Four Minds

The Fantastic Four Minds with Alistair Appleton (Mindsprings)

Alistair is returning to Cardiff to lead a workshop exploring the "four immeasurables" or Brahma Viharas.

Central to almost all Buddhist schools, these four mind states are said to be the perfect 'atmosphere' of the mind for humans negotiating the ups and downs of life. Drawing on his experience as a meditator and as a therapist, Alistair encourages to us to make these mind states come alive in a very vivid, somatic way.

The course will first look at the habitual frames that we put onto life and which typically make us suffer and then look at the somatic practices of 'heart training' that can help us free up our mind to receive the world with love, joy, compassion and equanimity.

It's a course suitable for people with no experience of meditation or Buddhist and for those wanting to revisit these core teachings in a fresh way.

The weekend begins at 10am and finishes at 5pm on both days.

Please bring a small, vegetarian lunch to share.​

Alistair Appleton

It was in 2000, alongside his successful career in television, that Alistair Appleton began his serious involvement in meditation. Trained mainly in the Buddhist tradition, Alistair took refuge with Lama Yeshe Rinpoche, the abbot of Samye Ling Monastery in 2000 and sat several retreats at this extraordinary monastery in the Scottish borders and in the meditation hermitage on Holy Island near Arran.
