Two leading practitioners of mindfulness will be holding workshops at Temple Byron in the next two months.

On September 8 and 9, Zen- and Theravada-trained Patrick Kearney will explore the nature of mindfulness and its practice, as taught by the Buddha.

He says, ‘We are not concerned with “religion” or any dogmatic beliefs, but only with the systematic exploration of the nature of human experience.’

And on October 14 and 15, meditation teacher and clinical psychologist Malcolm Huxter will present workshops on ‘mindfulness and serenity meditation, equanimity (centred, balanced resilience) and relationship qualities of warm friendliness, appreciation and compassion.’

Bookings and further information, contact Greg at [email protected] or phone 0431 747 764.
