Cultivating self-compassion is a necessary component of deepening our meditation and life practices. It is only when we can receive our own sense of self from an open, generous and warm-hearted position that we can begin to really see who and how we are in all our wonderous complexities, as individuals and as communities.
Drawing from Willa’s training in somatic therapy and yoga and Peter’s background in Insight meditation and mindfulness, this workshop will explore the profound potential for transformation and self-knowledge that this radical practice can have.
PETER FERNANDO lived and trained as a Buddhist monk for 7 years and is now a teacher with Original Nature Insight Meditation in Wellington. Peter teaches workshops at SOUL CENTRE in Auckland and with SOUL RETREATS worldwide.
