Course outline

We are really pleased to be able to offer the Mindfulness Association’s annual retreat called “Mindfulness for Life”. It is open to people who have completed our Mindfulness, Compassion and Insight training's either as one year courses at Samye Ling and related centres, or as part of the University of Aberdeen’s MSc in Mindfulness Studies ran in partnership with the Mindfulness Association. Long term practitioners who have completed appropriate equivalent trainings are also welcome to apply by sending details of their experience to the Mindfulness Association.

The Mindfulness for Life programme was established to provide a space for exploration of how we can bring the inner freedom from our Mindfulness, Compassion, Insight practice into our lives and find creative ways to engage with the world in which we find ourselves.  It is possible to be “awake in the world” and express  interconnectedness rather than reinforcing the illusion of separation but we do need friends on the journey. This is a unique opportunity to gather with fellow experienced practitioners for learning, practice, dialogue and to experience the wonders of Holy Island. 

The retreat will begin the evening of July 9th and end after breakfast on the 15th July 2018.
