Hi friends of Tig-Le,

Mindfulness drives change at every level of experience both individually and collectively. We look forward to seeing you for practice.

We have many pathways running simultaneously holding the common thread of sharing of mindfulness including weekly sessions, workshops, retreats, and private dialogue.

Having a variety of approaches to practice allows us to share foundational trainings required for the setting up of mindfulness, along with creating opportunities for deeper exploration, enriched mindfulness, that meets and provides for the diverse needs, interest, experience, and understandings of individuals and community.

Below is a schedule of all our upcoming sessions and more detailed information. We have some incredibly useful and practical, as well as challenging and enjoyable sessions ahead.

Mindfulness and Meditation Workshops

compassionate engagement workshop

Compassionate Engagement: A meditative framework

Tuesday 22nd Sept 9.15am – 11.30am @ Fair Harvest Permaculture

This workshop provides a structured meditative training and visual framework as a technique for developing compassionate engagement and response, allowing for a deeper relationship, and understanding of how to meet and work mindfully with challenging experiences and situations.

Each one of us seeks connection through engagement. To be understood, to have our thoughts and feelings seen and heard, our beliefs and values respected, our experiences and knowledge held as valid, to contribute to relationships and life in meaningful ways. In seeking these we will unavoidably come into conflict with others’ thoughts and feelings, beliefs, values, and experiences.

Compassion is coming to see and value another and the human experience with increasing capacity to be open to understanding and objectively caring.

The workshop includes private individual work, and a collective exploration of a modern shared experience requiring our compassionate engagement for peacebuilding. E.g. Equality, Climate, Governance, Poverty.

Suggested contribution as Dana is $25 – $40pp.Registrations are helpful, you can use the event link below or contact Ian at Tig-Le House tiglehouse@gmail.com
