Breaking Free of Habits
EAMBA retreat 2021
January 2-7, 2021 (Online retreat)
with Martine Batchelor
REGISTRATION FOR THIS RETREAT IS CLOSED
During this retreat Martine will look at the habits that bind us and stop our potential for wisdom and compassion manifesting fully. We will explore the meditative tools found in the insight tradition like mindfulness of the breath, sounds and feeling tones to show how we can engage creatively with our habits and transform them into positive functions.
Knowing how it Feels
In this retreat Martine would like to explore mindfulness of feeling tones (vedanas) in its multifaceted aspects; how it is impacted by contact through the senses and determined by perceptions. We will see how conditioned the experience of vedanas is and in turns how it influences our mood. We will also discover how mindfulness of feeling tones is connected with ethics and the four qualities of friendliness, compassion, joy and equanimity. During this retreat we will also have the opportunity to examine the process of grasping and its amplifying/exaggerating effects and how meditation can help us to de-grasp and release our holding thus allowing for creative engagement and a creative response.
This retreat welcomes mindfulnessteachers and those in training.
