活動詳情 About The Event

(此活動以英語進行)

We are delighted to invite you in joining us at the 4-day mindfulness and Lovingkindness Meditation retreat led by Ms Gen Heng and Jessica Mui. This is wonderful opportunity to spend the four days of Ching Ming festival to practice with good spiritual Friends. 

Mindfulness is a gentle awareness of our present moment body and mind states. With the skilful cultivation of mindfulness, it gives us inner peace and the wisdom of understanding oneself. Lovingkindness is unconditional love and friendliness towards all beings. It makes no distinction between any living being.  In this silent retreat, we will practice sitting, walking meditation, mindful eating, mindful work and mindfulness in interpersonal interaction, while radiating kindness towards oneself and others. By cultivating the wholesome qualities of the mind and heart, we can apply them into our daily life to live in ease and harmony with others.  

This retreat is suitable for beginners, as well as experienced meditators.  The format will be a combination of sitting and walking meditation sessions throughout the day, as well as some mindful dialogue practice. Participants will be invited to observe Noble Silence and be technology-free during the retreat period (mobile devices will be safely stored with the organisers). Vegetarian breakfast and lunch will be served. Evening meal will be quite light. 

 

Please ensure you have read the Fa Hong Monastery Code Of Conduct guidelines before applying for this event.
