A Day Retreat Led by Ven Canda for Bristol Insight: “Contented and Easily Satisfied”

Date(s) - 23 Feb 2020
9:15 am - 5:00 pm










The ennobling quality of contentment is a direct antidote to the cause of suffering: restless desire. Whilst the winds of wanting blow us from past to future, always promising happiness someplace else, contentment enables the mind to linger with loving appreciation in this moment; within this imperfect body and mind.


This retreat will show how, when we are contented and easily satisfied, even unpromising experiences tend to reveal their beauty, opening us to ever-deeper layers of inner peace.


The day will include periods of sitting and walking meditation, Dhamma reflections and an opportunity for Q&A. This retreat is open to newcomers to meditation as well as those with more experience.
