The Five Mindfulness Trainings form an ethical basis for a happy life.
Based on the precepts written during the time of the Buddha, these trainings were written by Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh and are periodically updated to ensure they relate to our current world conditions. The trainings offer a wonderful way to guide us in our everyday choices. By practising with the trainings, we improve the quality of our thinking, speaking and acting and therefore, our quality of life. In this way we learn how to reduce suffering and increase happiness for ourselves, our loved ones, society and the planet.
In this retreat, we will explore the trainings in-depth, hear from those experienced in practising with the trainings, share our own responses to them and take part in a ceremony to transmit the trainings to those who wish to receive them, as the ethical framework for their life.
