ENROLLMENTS ARE NOW CLOSED. Please text JAC 0414998382 if you wish to try for late enrollment.
You are welcome to join us for 10 consecutive mornings of silent meditation sittings with daily short talks by Mutribo. These powerful mornings will take place in the Northern Rivers, and we have found these 10-morning programs to be a powerful portal for all that attend in deepening a personal meditation practice and also an understanding of oneself.
Each morning holds the format where the group of committed meditators enters the hall in silence, set up comfortably (we have floor chairs and regular chairs and lots of cushions available for all), and Mutribo starts us off with a short talk, and then we sit in silent meditation for 90 minutes and exit in silence, creating a powerful vacuum unusual to our modern day lives that are usually filled with movement and noise. Everyone practices whatever silent seated meditation practice they usually use, or often people luxuriate in the silence without using a specific technique.
The program will be 7 am-8.40 am from 4th – 13th December 2023 inclusive.
There is a fee to join which covers the cost of the hall hiring of $60 per person and is inclusive of GST.
There will be an opportunity to join an evening talk/Q+A with Mutribo also on the evening of the 13th Dec. If you enrol, we will be in touch regarding this, any further questions don’t hesitate to ask.
Some words from Mutribo;
“The still point is that space inside each one of us that carries the blueprint of our destiny. It is that animating speck of Consciousness that sets everything in motion and bestows the possibility, within each human being, of understanding and seeing. It is our connection to the divine, our way back home.
Silence is the simplest practice to reconnect with that centre at the core of each of us. It is also the most direct way to understand what lies at the heart of all suffering. It cuts away the noise and the unnecessary and opens up an access to our interiority. The still point inside each one of us waits patiently and lovingly for our awareness to return to that Source where all questions dissolve into the original silence.
These next ten mornings of silent sittings at Mevlana this July are open to anyone who wishes to spend some time in silence. There will be no specific meditation instruction or direction given. The sittings provide an opportunity to give yourself the luxury to just stop….. to look and to see what lies deep inside you.
No specific guidance is required for that. But this silence is sustained and supported by each individual’s unique presence and awareness within the space. Meditation – being with whatever is – is deepened by the presence of other meditators, each one intentionally engaged with their own interiority. Any silent practice or method that helps that immersion to happen in you most easily is the right one for you.
There has only ever been one refuge available to each human being, confronted by suffering and the steady uncertainty of this manifestation and that is to know her Self. Each time an individual has arrived in that Understanding, she has found a space of peace and resolution that belongs to a different way of seeing. She sees everything exactly as it is, now, with no need of any personal interference any longer but rather a space that simply mirrors and resonates an unchanging love.
The still point lies at the Heart of Everything.
TESTIMONIAL FROM A STUDENT THAT ATTENDED A PREVIOUS 10 MORNINGS
“The still point is without comparison. Even after almost 30 years of meditation practice, it is single handedly the most profound and ground breaking meditation experience in my life.” – Jimmi James
