Course Leader: Ven K Sri Rewatha Thero
Scottish Mindfulness Centre, our parent organization at Glasgow, held a weekend retreat that taught mindfulness meditation based on a fusion of traditional Buddhist practice and modern western approaches as promoted in the programme of the Stress Reduction Clinic at the University of Massachusetts Medical Centre.
The course started at 7pm on Friday the 10th of June and finished on Monday the 13th with excellent feedback from the participants. John Cooter was one of those very happy participants who said “This was a memorable weekend in a beautiful and peaceful setting, ideally suited to such an event. Bhante was an inspirational teacher, presenting spiritual and psychological aspects of mindfulness in harmony with one another. He also has a wicked sense of humour! Before arriving I hadn't been sure what to expect but came away committed to continuing my journey into Mindfulness and to work towards being able to teach its benefits to others."Read More
