7 Points of Mind Training Module 5

Whilst this event is part of an ongoing series it is also suitable for people who are new to mindfulness and would like to attend an introductory session.

 Each half day retreat will be a combination of teaching and practice with time for reflection and advice. These teachings, rooted in Buddhist wisdom and totally applicable to our modern lives, help us to develop deeper mindfulness and compassion, and show us how to transform life's challenges and difficulties.​

2pm - 5pm
