We are already happy. However, this might not be our experience at present…
Suryacitta’s view is that mindfulness does not involve years and years of struggling with self-development. In fact, self-development can sometimes get in the way, because self-development is all about the self, all about the ego, all about me, which is often the root cause of our suffering and problems.

The way to be happy is not achieved by acquiring anything outside of ourselves, or by developing this quality or that quality. Nor is it achieved by trying to be a special type of person, or being a “good” person, but by looking at the story of who we think we are.

We are happy when we stop believing and identifying with the image we have of ourselves in our own heads.

Happiness is for everybody, not just for the select few. We don’t need to live in a special place, we don’t need to put on special clothes or recite sacred words in sacred places. It is available to each and every one of us, if we are willing to look at ourselves with honesty and with courage.
Suitable for beginners through to experienced practitioners, mindfulness expert, Suryacitta Malcolm Smith, will share his wealth of experience and understanding of Mindfulness meditation on this weekend retreat to help us appreciate being in the moment, stay present and enjoy life more.
Suryacitta is one of the most experienced mindfulness teachers in the UK, the author of three books and has taught mindfulness and compassion meditation to 1000s of people in the UK and abroad. From 2001 to 2005 he lived in a meditation retreat centre, dedicated to intensive practice and teaching. He is known as the teacher’s teacher having taught many of the teachers in Leicestershire, the UK and Europe.
Suryacitta is renowned for his absolute down-to-earth approach, and for his simplicity, clarity and humour in teaching, being free of mindfulness jargon and clichés.
Delicious, hearty vegetarian lunch, homemade cake and hot drinks are included.
You are welcome to join us for one day or the whole weekend.
Concession places available, please get in touch: info@theweeretreat.co.uk
A master of meditation, teaching & storytelling, this is one mindfulness retreat you don’t want to miss!
“Suryacitta, probably the best mindfulness teacher in the UK in my experience” Ed McBain
