5 - 7 July 2019
, United Kingdom
World Peace Initiative Foundation and Mind Stories Team would like to welcome you to a weekend retreat in the city of London. You will try a lifestyle based on the practice of a Buddhist monk for 3 days to learn the art and science of meditation and mindfulness through teachings and workshops. This will bring more understanding about how Buddhist Monks simplify their lives yet amplify their happiness as scientists found in their research.
This retreat is designed for those who are interested in deepening their meditation experience, developing mindful habits, googling with a Buddhist Monk and mentors on different aspects of life, exploring the ancient Buddhist philosophies (such as Law of Karma, Impermanence, and Noble 8-fold Path), and enjoying the special activities which are practical, applicable, yet fun in its own way that can only be experienced.
Our goal is to bring you on an insightful knowledge and wisdom filled journey hardly found elsewhere in order to cultivate inner peace for personal and professional growth. The technique used for our meditation and mindfulness practice is called “Center of the Body” technique (or Center of Gravity) which is the place where our body and mind can be in balance. During the retreat, the Teaching Monk will guide you through 7 bases of the mind until you gently reach the Center of the Body where the mind can become more powerful. This technique has been taught 2500 years ago since the Buddha’s time. The first of its kind where you learn the lifestyle of a Buddhist Monk in the heart of London to simplify life and amplify happiness.
