PIA MIND CENTRE HOSTS INTERNATIONAL MEDITATION RETREAT

Thailand’s newly launched and internationally rated Phuket International Academy Mind Centre (PIAMC) for balance and well being is hosting an exclusive weekend meditation retreat from 18 20th June with world-renowned teacher Dr. B. Alan Wallace. The weekend retreat will be conducted in the PIAMC’s specifically designed meditation hall and Dr. Wallace will teach a sequence of meditations for the cultivation of the “Four Immeasurables,” namely loving-kindness, compassion, empathetic joy, and impartiality.

The Four Immeasurables Retreat will initially focus on the practice of “mindfulness of breathing”, which is an effective method for soothing the body and calming the mind. A second method that will be taught is both a shamatha practice and an “insight meditation” (vipashyana) called “settling the mind in its natural state”.

“The optimal situation to apply these teachings on cultivating a good heart is active life, socially engaged with other people at home and about town, moving away from habitual self-centeredness to greater empathy and loving concern for the welfare for those around us, ” Dr. Wallace said.

“This weekend retreat will consist of teachings, guided meditations, and discussions. Regardless of whether participants hold to any particular religious beliefs, these practices can be of benefit to everyone seeking to explore their own capacity to experience unconditional love and compassion.”

To book a place in the Four Immeasurables Retreat from June 18 to 20, please call the PIAMC on + 66 (0) 76 336 030 or email Weena on mtc@phuketinternationalacademy.com
