GAIA HOUSE COMES TO IRELAND
5-Day Residential Retreat with Christina Feldman and John Peacock from Gaia House
In St.Flannan’s, Ennis, Co.Clare
From 16th-21st August 2015
Cost: €570 / €530 for current students of mindfulness
The retreat is open to all, but preference will be given to teachers and students of mindfulness.
Gaia House, in Devon in Southern England, is an important and long-standing Meditation and Retreat Centre in the Western Insight tradition. Mindfulness Teachers from all over Europe and beyond come there annually to participate in retreats which are geared towards their needs and which fulfill the requirement for an annual, teacher-led, silent mindfulness meditation retreat, part of all good practice guidelines for mindfulness teachers. Josephine and Helen, along with many others from Ireland, have been attending retreats there for a number of years, to nourish their practice and their teaching. Many of those retreats have been taught by Christina Feldman and John Peacock. Now Christina and John have agreed to bring one of their retreats to St.Flannan’s in Ennis, Co.Clare from 16th to 21st August.
Christina Feldman is the founder and guiding teacher of Gaia House and author of many books including “Compassion: Listening to the Cries of the World”. She is also a guiding teacher at the Insight Meditation Society in Barre, Massachusetts. Jon Kabat-Zinn regards her as one of his teachers and he has co-led retreats with her in the past. Christina is on the faculty of the Exeter University M.Sc. in Mindfulness-based Approaches.
Dr.John Peacock is a renowned Buddhist scholar and teacher. He taught Buddhist studies and Indian religions at the University of Bristol for many years and is on the faculty of the Oxford University M.Sc. in MBCT. He is the Associate Director of the Oxford Mindfulness Centre. He is an adjunct lecturer on the Bangor University Masters Programmes in Mindfulness-based Approaches.
This retreat will be for anyone interested in spending time in silent reflection while being taught by two of the most highly regarded teachers in the Western world and will be of particular interest to teachers of mindfulness, for whom it satisfies the retreat requirement.
