|Hi friends of Tig-Le,|
I hope you are well and happy.
It is the time of year when the winter aspects of our human depth open naturally as we head into the mid-year with cooler wet weather and longer night hours, following the natural cycles, drawing the energies inwards, revealing the inner mandala. In bringing mindfulness to the patterns of Earth and nature it allows us to move purposefully with calm, kind attentiveness through the changing seasons of worldly experience.
I am currently transitioning through into the next phase of private retreat with one month of silent solitary practice beginning next week. Thank you for affording me this time to immerse, it is a wonderful opportunity.
Below is an update on what is coming up for third term when we recommence starting Tuesday 19th July through to Thursday 22nd September 2022. I look forward to gathering then, sharing practice with Sangha, friends, and new faces.
Stay warm and cosy, keeping your practice alive shining a light on this precious life within and all around us.

Mettā meditation weekend: Holding life dear 11th – 13th November 2022 @ Fair Harvest. Mettā (Pali.) in the context of mindfulness speaks to the ever-present possibility to hold all aspects of this life and our experiences of living dearly in our hearts, as a good friend. An extension of our mindfulness, our Mettā qualities within show us the potential for a deeper friendship, for love and kindness, with ourselves, others, human experience, the World, this life. Practice helps us to find meaningful sources of love and kindness within our own lives, to find the freedom to live filled with greater tenderness and goodwill. Experience with mindfulness is highly recommended. Bookings here at Metta meditation weekend – holding life dear (tiglehouse.org)
