Bridgeen’s Buddhist Bookclub

This will be my first bookclub and I’m delighted to be starting with a wonderful book by Thich Nhat Hahn. It promised to be a lovely way to progress through the dark winter evenings. There will be a half hour meditation each session, plus some reading, teaching and discussion.

You will need to get a copy of the book The Heart Of Buddha’s Teaching.
There will be 30-40 pages of home reading each week.

To book your place just message me 🥰🧘🏾‍♀️📿🙏🏽

New year mindful self-compassion retreat

The theme of this month’s retreat is ‘beginning anew’.

Mindful self-compassion is the foundation of emotional healing—being aware in the present moment when we’re struggling with feelings of inadequacy, despair, confusion, and other forms of stress (mindfulness) and responding with kindness and understanding (self-compassion). Mindful self-compassion also means holding difficult emotions—fear, anger, sadness, shame and self-doubt—and ourselves, in loving awareness, leading to greater ease and well-being in our daily lives.

Mindful self-compassion can be learned by anyone. It’s the practice of repeatedly evoking good will toward ourselves especially when we’re suffering—cultivating the same desire that all living beings have to live happily and free from suffering. And as the Dalai Lama says, self-compassion is the first step toward compassion for others.

This half-day retreat is suitable for everyone from complete beginners to experienced practitioners. It fun, practical and experiential.

It is possible to buy a ticket as a gift, the person just needs to give the name the ticket was booked under when they check in with me on the day.

Thank you, I look forward to seeing you.
