Hi friends of Tig-Le,
Fourth term mindfulness starts up next week Tuesday 20th October, here is an update on what is happening for us this term.
Ian will be focusing on the sharing of dharma teachings and meditative practices each Thursday morning here at Tig-Le House, along with weekend retreats and workshops dedicated to specific trainings, mindfulness, and dharma teachings both at Fair Harvest and Tig-Le. Ian will be using this term to share some of these deeper teachings along with working on training curriculums, Pujas, and Sadhana texts.
More of the work of sharing the Establishment of Mindfulness Practices will be done by friends of Tig-Le as mindfulness gains ground and understanding grows within community. Ben Robinson of CrossFit Margaret River holds a regular weekly Monday evening session 7.15pm open to everyone. These are a great opportunity for those who have evenings available for practice to attend as there are NO weekly Wednesday evening sessions at Tig-Le for fourth term. Tash Bostock will share the Establishment of Mindfulness Practices at Fair Harvest each Tuesday 9.30am, and Debbie Chambers hosts Mindful Art Wednesdays 10.30am at Ferart Studio.
We have now finished offering online sessions through Zoom. It has been a helpful tool and we appreciate that this has been the only access point for a few over the Covid-19 restriction period. Thank you to those who supported this effort. We will revisit the option of an online platform in the future.
For anyone interested in longer practices with Enriched Mindfulness instruction, our weekend retreats at Fair Harvest Permaculture are a great opportunity to explore deeper practices which include group sessions, experienced instruction, private dialogue, personal guidance, and respite. To run retreats, we require minimum numbers of participants, booking well in advance allows us to plan and ensure these weekends run. We continue working on making all our retreats accessible and inclusive with consideration to the realities of modern daily life. Our retreats are simple and comfortable with a strong focus on an ecologically responsible footprint. The Metta Meditation weekend in November is on!!
This month we celebrate the end of our 8th year running. We look forward to celebrating this together with a Wongkur of Chenrezi representation of the essence of Refuge, the spark of all our compassionate hearts working for peace in the world. A reflection of intent, and inspiration for anyone who values the efforts for cultivating peace and health for all this world. The Wongkur sacred ceremony begins Sunday 25th October 10am, followed by a shared lunch at 12 noon. All welcome.
Below is the calendar for fourth term, we look forward to seeing you then.
