Mindfulness And Self Care For Gay, Bi and Trans Men In London
Hamilton Hall is the first residential spiritual, self and sexual development retreat for mind, body and soul of men anywhere in Europe.
We are also the first to offer a weekly Blog / Newsletter.
We are also the first to offer residential weekends with a spiritual theme within your very own retreat and where your monies paid stay within the gay community. Hamilton Hall is also a NOT FOR PROFIT VENUE and where we give scores of FREE HOLIDAYS TO THE NEEDY every year - even through the Pandemic Year.#
With a web site receiving millions of page hits a ear and over 20,000 reading this Blog / Newsletter each week - and through twitter, it is read globally. It is always good when we can freely promote others working in a similar field to us - for THE BETTERMENT OF THE GAY SOUL and especially during these tying times. This free promotion is with our blessing.
Welcome to this friendly community of men. Learn how to stop stress and worry taking over and cultivate a sense of wellbeing, ease and calm through some simple guided meditations. Beginners welcome, no previous experience needed.
The evening consists of a mix of guided meditations, a refreshment break which includes time to socialise and conversations in groups of 2 or 3 on the theme for the evening.
Mindfulness is not about escaping from the world or forcing your mind into silence, but as my teacher once said "it's building a container to hold the chaos". The evening explores how to build this strong container by connecting deeply into our body and using the breath as an anchor for our attention so that we can train our mind to stay more on a single point rather than drift into random thoughts, speculation and worries.
The evening is free for those in financial hardship (contact Nick to request this) with a suggested fee of:
£15 full price (supporters price making reduced fees possible)
£12 reduced (for those on a low income)
£8 concession (for students, unemployed and retired)
About the teacher: Nick lived as a Buddhist monk for 6 years and has meditated for over 30 years. This group has been running for 12 years. Nick shares his experience in a secular format that is open to anyone.
This event is for men only.
