Bodhisattva KMC (Venue Map & Information)3 Lansdowne Road, Brighton, East Sussex, BN3 1DN
From the depths of our heart we wish to be happy, in fact we wish to be happy all the time. We are always seeking happiness and yet lasting happiness eludes us. Furthermore, we so often experience mental pain, worry, stress and frustration and our lives can seem so complicated and dissatisfying.
During this day retreat we will explore how we all have the capacity to experience inner peace, which is the true source of happiness. We will learn some simple meditations that help us to let go of stress and other painful states of mind and thereby enable us to enjoy peace of mind. By getting a taste of the healing power of meditation we can come to understand that true happiness is within our grasp and achieving it is actually simpler that we think.
The retreat venue
The environment of Bodhisattva KMC is very relaxing and there is plenty of time between retreat sessions to enjoy our café, to meet and chat with other retreaters and the community of Bodhisattva KMC, and to enjoy walking and gentle strolls along the Brighton and Hove sea front and promenade. The peaceful surroundings of Bodhisattva KMC help people to create a comfortable space within their own minds.
