Wai Cheong_new

with Wai Cheong Kok

As life expectancy increases in developed nations, we can look forward to two or even three decades in the later part of our life, after the classic "retirement" age. How can the quality of mindfulness help us prepare and enrich this part of our life, so that we can transform it into something deeply meaningful and fulfilling? Explore these issues in an evening with Wai Cheong. Full details & rego here

Date & Time: Friday 29 July, 7.00-8.30pm

Cost: $30/$27 VI member. Register early to ensure your place as Wai Cheong is a very popular teacher.

Wai Cheong_new

with Wai Cheong Kok

Ageing affects all aspects of our life – our physical body, our habits of thoughts & emotions, and our relationships with people and environment. Bringing the quality of mindfulness into this journey can illuminate some dark areas, lighten the load along the way, and even enlighten us to our true nature. In this workshop we can explore together through guided meditations and discussions how cultivation of mindfulness can positively impact our ageing journey. Full details & rego here

Date & Time: Saturday 30 July, 10.00am-3.30pm

Cost: $60/50 VI member (including a light vegetarian lunch). For catering purposes please register online.
