Who Am I?

Such a great question! We're not so much interested in the worked out answer - although those will turn up, our minds can't resist it - we're interested in getting under the skin of the question and THEN seeing what comes up. We'll go through the methodology on the first session.

Sitting quietly, we'll pose the question to ourselves. We'll do some meditation practices to support ourselves physically - using centuries old Zen meditations to make sure we feel grounded and rooted.

Asking this question is a great way of seeing through areas that we may feel 'stuck' with. It can be fabulous for clearing cobwebs and getting a sense of uncluttering. But also it offers the potential to move out of our traditional ways of looking at the world. We may even feel what we are, rather than theorising about what we are. There are very few times when we get the opportunity to sit quietly and truly look within. This is a nettle well worth grasping!

Plenty of time for discussion.

How much does it cost and how long is it?

This course is free, donations would be gratefully received but are by no means obligatory. We'll sit over 4 mornings. Feel free to drop in or out as you like.

Biography

Hello, I'm Kim and I started Serenity Retreat back in 2010. I am a big fan of meditation and mindfulness practices because of my own experience in how useful they've been in smoothing my relationship to life's lumps and bumps I'm not saying that everything becomes sweetness and light once we start with these practices, but for sure I don't take things anywhere near as personally as I used to and, in general, life feels as though it's flowing more easily - hurray! I've also become much better at trusting my internal satnav.

I have really come to love Zen for its straightforward, clear seeing approach. It asks us to get right to the heart of the matter - what's our DIRECT experience of life? I try my best to pass this on in my own words until it's time for the words to stop and simply sit. As much as I love Zen, I have also come to see that there are some other beautiful practices out there in the world and that there is space for all of it. So I've cherry picked over the years. Our own experience, after all, is our greatest teacher.
