Special London Weekend – An Urban Retreat

Supported by Advaya Initiative

A rare and special opportunity to experience the life-changing, perspective shifting and heart opening teachings of Burgs in London.

This special weekend will give you a taste of the healing benefits of meditation and give you an introduction to the teachings that Burgs offers on his signature 7 day foundation retreats.

Burgs’ dynamic “Just Let Go” weekends are an amazing opportunity to dial into your own powerful healing intelligence and give your whole system a total reboot. 

The teachings will be fun whilst being deeply rewarding and healing, and will include a mixture of sitting meditation and dynamic chi kung movement. There is no need for any previous knowledge of either meditation or chi kung.

The Saturday will run as a normal workshop day, with the content focused on meditation and its healing potential.

The Sunday will focus more on the practice of Loving Kindness, compassion and appreciation, whilst the talks will focus more on what Burgs calls “The Give Back Generation”

Our ability to experience and express love is a reflection of how open we are to life, both its extraordinary wonder and its many challenges. In this introductory workshop Burgs will explore with us the importance of loving kindness, appreciation and gratitude and genuine compassion, in the process of realising and living to our true potential.

Through the combination of careful instruction, deep reflection and the gradual maturing of our own insight we learn how these states emerge and come to maturity naturally within us when we are fully open to life as it is, and that their absence or our difficulty in experiencing them is only the result of the negative attitudes and conditioning that block us.

We will also explore the relationship between our lower mind and and higher mind ( or true nature); the innate state of pure awareness and the boundless love that lies in the deepest part of our heart.
