Mindfulness & Compassion-Retreat: Cleanse the Negative Impacts of Covid 19 & Heal the Planet.
Sunday, Dec 20 from 6:00 am to 4:00 pm (PST, US & Canada time)
Change and pain are inevitable but suffering for them is optional. Things often don’t go the way we want them to. And the times that they do go our way, they don’t last forever. We feel agony, irritation, and anxiety about change. This is the kind of suffering that is optional, and we could “not pick it up,” as Ajahn Pasanno would say. However, we may not help but pick up agony, irritation, and stress. It comes automatically. Our brains have been trained for so long to react to things we don’t like, and thus we suffer. We can train ourselves to adapt with ease. We can actually learn to put things down and release ourselves from the cascade of worry, fear, and anxiety.
Attending a retreat is an excellent way to create ease and well-being. Take time off from the routine of life to sit and meditate, to listen to wise words to help shift your perspective on life.
