Return to Your True Home: The Realm of Natural Awareness

As a child, did you ever sit under a favourite tree, immersed in the wonder of a single, precious leaf? As our days grow more complex, these vibrant and wholehearted moments may begin to elude even seasoned meditators. But it doesn't have to be that way.

On the Natural Awareness workshop, you will be guided through the Four Foundations of Mindfulness to bring you to a surprising destination: the effortless state of presence known as "non-meditation." It's a journey back to the unabashed presence and delight of the “Child Mind” that lies within all of us. Along the way, you'll learn how to:

Work with the body, emotions, thoughts, and sense perceptions as your objects of focus

Tune in to your natural cycles of attention and effortless “non-meditation” awareness

Embrace the inevitable “meditator’s struggle knot" (it means that your practice is working!)

Open a heartfelt space with others to listen, speak, and connect more authentically

Master a wealth of practices for riding life’s emotional storms

Ray reflects "We've been training our minds for a lifetime to flee—to escape to anywhere but here." With this encouraging new offering, Natural Awareness shows us how to stop running and come home to the abiding freedom waiting for us right here, right now.

Being delivered at regional venues across Ireland and the UK – contact us to find out dates and venues near you!
