Bristol Retreat March 4th 2017 & Spain September 2017



              Into the Mystery

                              The essence of mindfulness and non duality

                    Engineer's house  Clifton, Bristol -  4th March 2017

We usually bring our histories to each present moment -our patterns, prejudices and personalised perceptions. These responses bring a certain familiarity and a sense of security. This makes being fully present in the moment a challenge. Freedom is the loosening 

of our attachments to our histories and an opening to the mystery 

of the unknown.

The day will be a blend of understanding and practice, of clarification and meditation

Martin Wells is a teaching and supervising transactional analyst who has been studying meditation for over 30 years. He works in the NHS in the UK, as a consultant psychotherapist, where he integrates non-dual teachings with mindfulness and psychotherapy.

                         The Silent Background

          Orgiva, Southern Spain    8, 9 10th of September 2017

Words are merely pointers to a deeper understanding and to the silent background. Too often we mistake the signpost for the path and the reflection for the source. In this retreat we will have the opportunity to realise the silence as the infinite background to our lives - not as the absence of sound but as the source of all sound

The three days will be a mixture of discussion, contemplation, meditation and a silent walk in the mountains at the local Tibetan monastery.
