Monastic Summer Residential Retreat
Thursday June 9th to Sunday June 12th 2016
At Wiston Lodge, Nr Biggar, South Lanarkshire, ML12 6HT
“When we practice mindfulness, we naturally
become attuned to the planet.We are able to listen to ourselves and each other with mindfulness and compassion,we increase our ability to listen to our planet. Practicing compassionate listening to the Earth, we hear that the planet desperately needs us to reconnect with the Earth and with each other. There is no difference between healing ourselves and healing the Earth.”
From Love Letter to the Earth by Thich Nhat Hanh
You are warmly invited to join us at our summer retreat from June 9th to June 12th 2016 guided by Br Phap Vu of Blue Cliff Monastery New York, in the
tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh.
We will gather as a Sangha of all ages to support our practice of Mindfulness together.
Wiston Lodge with its extensive grounds and natural environment, merging upwards to Tinto Hill, gives us the opportunity to deepen our awareness of
Interbeing with Nature and with one another. The doors are wide open for our
Wake Up friends, and we hope that everyone young and old will feel nourished and enriched through the explorations of the practice guided by our visiting monastic, Br Phap Vu of Blue Cliff Monastery New York.
Through our time together, we will explore the power of the teachings of the
Five Mindfulness Trainings in our personal lives and in society.
