Drop in Meditation, Tuesday mornings @ Temple on the Park

Come along to our guided drop-in meditation sessions to try out meditation for yourself. These by donation sessions are open to everyone at all levels of experience.

The essence of meditation is to simply let our minds be, natural and at ease. Many people try meditation once or twice and think they can’t do it because the flow of thoughts seems unstoppable.  In fact, anyone can do it.  Meditation isn’t about  stopping or suppressing thoughts, but learning to watch the flow with compassion, spaciousness and without judgement.

There is no need to book; you are invited to just ‘drop in’ whenever you can.

BLUE SKY MIND

An Urban Meditation Workshop

Presented by Drs Ian and Ruth Gawler

Sunday 30 June 2019, 10am – 4pm

The mind has two aspects

These can be compared to the clouds – our active thoughts and emotions that change all the time and can range from beautiful to turbulent; and the blue sky – that aspect of our mind that is still, peaceful, clear, wise and compassionate. In meditation we have the opportunity to get to know both aspects of our mind better and to connect more deeply with our true potential and who we really are.

Join us as we practise together

While this workshop will be profoundly instructional and regenerative, the focus will be upon direct experience, practising together and answering your questions about meditation. Ian and Ruth will lead and guide meditation practices during the day, drawing on their more than forty years’ experience of meditation practice and teaching.

About Ian and Ruth

Ian has played a major role in pioneering and popularizing meditation and other mind-body techniques in the Western world. Ian began his working life as a veterinarian, then in 1975 he had his right leg amputated due to bone cancer. The cancer recurred later that year and utilizing a wide range of treatment modalities and self-help options, Ian survived against the odds. He co-founded the world’s first lifestyle-based cancer self-help group in 1981 and the first similar groups for people with multiple sclerosis in 2001.  In 1987, Ian Gawler was awarded the Order of Australia Medal for his services to the community. Ian has authored six bestselling books, including the internationally acclaimed You Can Conquer Cancer.

 

Ruth has an openness, directness and authenticity that have endeared her to many. She has worked and studied for over 19 years with her husband Ian in programs and meditation retreats around Australia and New Zealand. Past President of Meditation Australia, Ruth’s regular personal study and practice of yoga and meditation over 35 years informs her work in helping people open their awareness, connect with body, deeply relax and integrate their whole being.  A GP with a Masters in GP Psychiatry, Ruth has a special interest in what really helps people to heal – physically, emotionally, socially and spiritually.

This workshop will be based upon Ian’s latest book Blue Sky Mind 

This book provides direct guidance into an authentic and deep experience of meditation. While it does introduce highly practical methods for relaxation, concentration and mindfulness, the real gem is introducing reliable methods for advancing beyond the busyness and distractions of the active mind, and directly experiencing the still mind.

This workshop is suitable for everyone keen to deepen their meditation.

It is also well suited to all Health Professionals.
