Loving-Kindness and Compassion WEEKEND RESIDENTIAL WORKSHOP


Join us for a whole-hearted weekend with a unique combination of the practices of Loving-Kindness, Compassion and Mindfulness. Loving-kindness is unconditional, inclusive love, a love with wisdom. It has no conditions, no dependencies, no scorecard for “deserving of”, no restrictions or expectations of anything in return. This is the ideal, pure love, which everyone has in potential. Through silent, guided, group, individual meditaion and visualisation practices, you will be supported in culturing a love for self, which is where it begins. Unless we have this uncondiitonal love within ourselves, it is difficult to extend it to others. The practices in this weekend will first nurture self love, and then include others who are special to us, and ultimately all living beings. The unique combination of mindfulness and loving kindness that has been developed and taught by Marjo, is a powerful way to learn to see deeply, open your heart more fully, and act with clarity and compassion in all situations. The loving-kindness practices softly breaks down barriers that you feel inwardly toward yourself and others to release any mental blockages, numbness, self-judgement, or self-hatred. Combined with mindfulness meditation to assist the journey of bringing the mind into the heart, these practices create a clearer space to drop more deeply into your heart, allowing it to open more fully and let go of the need to care for or possess others to ensure your own strength or safetly. As you begin to fill your being with the fullness of love, compassion and kindness, you will heal old wounds and access the truth of your divine state of being. Your love and actions will come more from a selfless place, while culturing your own relaxation, harmony and joy. You will become less dependent on unhealthy relationships, and more easily connect to healthy, loving relationships based on equinimity. This is a truly special weekend, that is not offered anywhere else in this beautiful form.  A true gift.
