Recognizing the challenge of maintaining an ongoing meditation practice; the need for ‘practical wisdom perspectives’ in dealing with the stress and issues of contemporary life; the opportunity to check-in with a well-practiced Meditation Teacher; and the benefits of group support with like-minded people; through WELL-AWARE-NESS, John Barter provides a weekly Mindfulness and Wisdom based Meditation Group at his property on the Tweed Coast..
Tweed Coast, NSW
Weekly Meditation Group – Thursdays at Farrants Hill
Due to COVID-19 Our Meditation Group has been on hold at Farrants Hill for much over the past year, however John is
pleased to inform you that we will resume our weekly sessions, beginning on Thursday the 1st of July as an ongoing weekly Thursday group, 6:30-7:30pm.
This Meditation Group runs for one hour, and is structured as follows:
The first half-hour John guides a Mindfulness based Meditation. The second half hour some reflections and teachings on applying practical wisdom for living consciously, while learning and growing through our experience of Life. These reflections often come from John’s understanding of the Buddha’s teachings, his own experience of Buddhist Monastic life, and the application of psycho-spiritual perspectives to daily living.
As COVID-19 protocols will be observed so we will need to limit our group size to 12 people maximum.
Bringing your own flask of tea/coffee and mug will be very helpful & reassuring.
