Through mindfulness – based methods, qualities like acceptance, emotional balance and compassion can be developed and improved. These aspects come to life by letting ourselves stop for a while and feel what is happening in the here and now, by allowing things to be just as they are.
This workshop will give an opportunity to experience the challenges and the benefits of stopping , staying still and being mindful. We hope and believe that an experiential approach is the best teacher for considering the potential benefits of mindfulness training.

 

THE GUEST HOUSE

This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.

A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.

Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they are a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still, treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out
for some new delight.

The dark thought, the shame, the malice.
Meet them at the door laughing and invite them in.

Be grateful for whatever comes.
Because each has been sent,
as a guide from beyond.
— Jelaluddin Rumi,
translation by Coleman Barks
