Our friends in the Northern Scotland Sanghas very warmly (literally!) invite you to their next winter retreat in 2017
Understanding our Mind: a three-day retreat on the nature of our mind, based on the teachings of Thich Nhat Hanh taking place at Newbold House, Forres, Moray from 9th to 12th February 2017
This year the retreat will be guided by Order of Interbeing member Michael Schwammberger, formerly Brother Phap Son from Plum Village. Susanne Olbrich, recently ordained as Dharma teacher, will assist him.
Looking into the nature of our mind can help us better understand ourselves and work more skilfully with the transformation of our suffering. These teachings on the mind are perhaps some of the deepest wisdom available, as they help us connect with the ultimate nature of our mind and bring about a deep healing in the way we relate to our selves and the world around us. This retreat will also offer us the opportunity to deepen our mindfulness practice, in sitting, walking, sharing and silence, in the supportive community of our Sanghas.
