The Art of Gratitude

Meditations for the festive season

with Buddhist Teacher Nicola Reekie

Saturday 14th Dec | 10am – 1pm

Venue: Wye Village Hall, Bridge Street, TN25 5EA

Booking Online Required – Limited Capacity

Grateful people are happy people!  We can often be so focused on what we don’t have, we forget to appreciate and feel grateful for what we already have and the enormous amount of benefit we receive from others.

Discover for yourself the uplifting experience of contentment, joy and positive energy that comes from meditating on gratitude. Through simple meditations we can reflect on the truth of our situation, take the time to fully appreciate our life and wish to use it to its full potential.

By living with an awareness of the kindness of others, we can maintain a warm heart and a feeling of being close to everyone.This special way of looking at the world brings joy and creates the foundation for stable and loving relationships.

In this way through making gratitude part of each day we can live a life of genuine happiness, fulfillment and inner purpose.

The holidays offer us a collective opportunity to connect with our own best selves.

Please join us for a special holiday meditation combining two of the most open-hearted contemplations in all of Buddhism: Giving & Gratitude.

Each session will consist of a talk and guided meditation plus time for Q&A.
