Urban Meditation Workshop

Saturday 15 June 2019, 10am - 4pm


This workshop will be based upon Ian’s new book, and will be held by Ian and Ruth Gawler.


The workshop is well suited to all Health Professionals. Certificates of attendance will be provided for those who request them.


The mind has two aspects

These can be compared to the clouds - our active thoughts and emotions that change all the time and can range from beautiful to turbulent; and the blue sky - that aspect of mind beyond all the activity wherein dwells a stillness, along with peace, clarity, wisdom and compassion. In meditation we have the opportunity to get to know both aspects of our mind better and to connect more deeply with what we are actually capable of, and who we really are.


Blue Sky Mind - the book

Recently released, this book provides direct guidance into an authentic and deep experience of meditation. While it does introduce highly practical methods for relaxation, concentration and mindfulness, the real gem is introducing reliable methods for advancing beyond the busyness and distractions of the active mind, and directly experiencing the still mind. 


Join us as we practise the Blue Sky Mind techniques together

While this workshop will be profoundly instructional and regenerative, the focus will be upon direct experience. Ian and Ruth will lead and guide the day, drawing on their combined experience of meditating and teaching for over 70 years.  More details of Ian and Ruth Gawler's work: This workshop is suitable for everyone keen to deepen their meditation.
