2017 Early Bird Bookings Open
9:30am–12:30pm: Mindfulness in Daily Life with Dyana Wells
Mindfulness is the most powerful tool we have for transformation.
We will use movement, meditation, creative visualisation and discussion to dive deeply into the experience of being alive, of being fully engaged in our present experience.
Using powerful yet gentle movement exercises from the Tibetan Yoga tradition, we cultivate an awareness which naturally opens our bodies and enriches our minds. Followed by discussion into core Buddhist principles, and meditation practices to give a deeper insight into how our mind/body operates.
Understanding and seeing clearly enable us to make changes that bring a greater ease and happiness to our lives.

Meditation for the Modern World
Courses on Mindfulness for Daily Life, with emphasis on Meditation from a Buddhist perspective.
The basic practice of mindfulness was taught by the Buddha 2,500 years ago. He was very clear that without mindfulness there is no liberation.
"This is the only way, for the purification of beings, ... for the destruction of suffering ... for the attainment of Nibbana, is the four foundations of mindfulness."
In these courses we will focus on the four foundations of mindfulness:
- awareness of the body
- awareness of feelings and emotions
- awareness of mental contents and thoughts
- awareness of phenomena, the patterns of life
We will be using different kinds of meditations and practices to train ourselves to be present to the many conflicting and compelling emotions, stories, and experiences that distress and distract us in daily life. You will develop your ability to rest in a calm spacious presence, meeting whatever arises with loving kindness and interest.
The series of classes has a practical focus.
- supporting the cultivation of awareness, concentration and total acceptance of the present moment.
- working with the body and mind to bring a full, subtle engagement with what is.
- increase our sense of connectedness with and responsibility to all of life.
