“Be the change that you want to see in the world”. Gandhi
Kalyana Centre for Mindfulness is a small residential Meditation Centre located in the town of Dingle, on the Dingle Peninsula, in the south west of Ireland. The Centre offers retreats and courses based on the liberating teachings of the Buddhist Philosophie.
It offers Mindfulness Meditation, Mindfulness based Stress Reduction courses as well as the 'Awakening Joy' course, based on James Baraz book 'Awakening Joy'.
Gentle exercises based on Kum Nye Yoga (Tibetan Healing Yoga) are integrated in many of the retreats. The cultivation of Loving Kindness (Metta) and Compassion (Karuna) and Altruistic Joy (Mudita) are taught in combination with Mindfulness Meditation or in separate workshops. Sound Focussing is another tool used to focus and calm the mind and heart in some of the retreats.
The teaching and practice of Mindfulness Meditation is open to anyone interested in exploring themselves and the deeper meaning of life, to anyone who wants to transform suffering and develop peace of mind. In order to practice Mindfulness Meditation it is not necessary to define yourself in a religious belief. Anybody, regardless of age, gender and religious affiliation is welcome to practice and will greatly benefit from it.
Mindfulness Meditation and Mindfulness based Stress Reduction enable us to cope with life's challenges, no matter how hard they are, and to relax through a deeper understanding in the midst of life's difficulties. The aim is to be contented and at ease.
