To let go does not mean, â€śI get rid of.â€ť It is much more subtle. To let go means to be able to let be with wisdom and kindness, allowing new things to arise. If we leave our thoughts alone, to some degree, they will leave us alone. Of course, this is â€ścontext specific.â€ť Letting go is not so wise for mountain climbers!
This weekend will also introduce the ideas of deep-rooted acceptance that is necessary because our tendency to resist pain causes us so much intense suffering. Life is hard, to be human is very difficult but we can train the mind to face and cope with whatever arises. The essence is the attitude we hold to whatever â€śweatherâ€ť is going on either outside or within us. That essence is kindness.
A simple forgiveness exercise will also be shared.
There is no fee for this course although donations are welcome. Your offering will help with the Monastery's considerable running costs, as well as the expenses incurred in inviting teachers.Â Donations may be made in the Reception Office.Tariff and Charges Guest Info
