Level 1 - Art of Being Human in Dorchester
with David Hope
March 2 / 9:30 AM - March 3 / 6:00 PM
Please note this weekend is offered at the Body Mind Spirit Centre, Alington Road, Dorchester, not the Bristol centre.
Level One introduces the rich Shambhala tradition, which inspires and encourages us to explore and celebrate what it is to be human. During the weekend we begin to work with the practice of meditation which allows this gentle exploration to take place. Level One offers both a good introduction for complete beginners and a fresh inspiration for those who may already have some experience of meditation within their own spiritual traditions.
Date: Sat 2nd March and Sun 3rd March 2018 starting at 9:30am.
Location: Body Mind Spirit Centre, Alington Road, Dorchester DT1 1QB
Contact: Colin Tracy on 01305 889476
Cost: £100 (£80 if paid by Feb 22nd)
