Jamyang Buddhist Centre

The workshop provides practical tools for building inner strength and a more meaningful, fulfilled life based on the 16 Guidelines for Life.

The idea is simple. To change the way we experience the world, we transform the way we think, act, relate to others and find meaning.

What To Expect

This 2-day Level 1 workshop will explore key attitudes for developing a mindful culture in family and community, in education, healthcare, or business. The focus will be on mindfulness, enquiry and ethics using the 16 Guidelines (16G) which provide a framework for reflecting on the ways we think, speak, act and find meaning in life.

The programme offers a range of practical tools and resources presented through a mixture of exercises, group work and discussion. The skill of mindfulness is fundamental and instruction and practice in mindfulness are included.

Beginners to the practices of mindfulness and meditation are welcome. The course is particularly beneficial for individuals who want to take practical techniques and implement them in their home relationships, community or workplace.

  • Increase emotional resilience and confidence
  • Improve relationships
  • Achieve a greater sense of well-being and purpose
