|Tig-Le House Newsletter 24th September 2021 |
Hi friends of Tig-Le. You may like to grab a cuppa before reading on…it’s a long, though good one! Looking ahead to 4th term 12th October – 12th December 2021, and beyond.
Tig-Le is happy to be offering its first step-by-step 8-week mindfulness training program this October. We have been working developing this specific program for 3 years, it is the culmination of over 16 years of practice and teachings received. It integrates both traditional teachings and modern mindfulness approaches.
Our first dedicated Permaculture retreat emerging out of teaching on the Permaculture Design Certificate courses at Fair Harvest. Students love ‘Zone 00’ and ‘Walking the land’ units and so we have put these together into a weekend retreat.
Other happenings include a community celebration of our 9th anniversary with a Wongkur (Sacred theatre) ceremony and shared dinner, compassion workshops series, mindful walking, longer retreats on mindfulness and nature, and a dedicated silent meditation retreat later next year.

Metta meditation weekend: making friends with life 12th – 14th November @ Fair Harvest
Metta meditation is an extension of our mindfulness, the potential for a deeper friendship with ourselves, others, the World, and life. Practice helps us to find meaningful sources of love and understanding within our own lives, to find the freedom to live filled with greater tenderness and goodwill, to heal feelings and experiences of disconnection and isolation caused by resentment, jealousy, hate, anger, and prejudice. This is an intensive weekend dedicated to meditative practice. Experience with mindfulness practice is a prerequisite. Bookings required: Metta meditation weekend 12th – 14th November 2021 – Tig-Le House
