On the Easter Day, Bhante Buddharakkhita led a journey to stillness (mindfulness and equanimity) in a day-long silent retreat. The retreat was organised to help participants develop mindfulness/stillness enable them navigate uncertainties in the current world. Today, we are faced with many challenges such as the stresses of COVID-19 pandemic, personal anxieties, insecurities, worries, fears and other mental issues.
In fact, our life has become too busy with a lot of noises and stresses and we have perceived this as the new normal. Breaking away from all these distractions that keep us lingering on the shallow surfaces of the mind, requires a certain degree of stillness and resilience. Our retreats give participants an opportunity to sit in silence cultivate peace and happiness. Participants also had a chance to integrate mindfulness meditation and yoga practice in order to balance the body and mind.
