The Inner Monastery 

This workshop is ONSITE

Workshop Description:
The Inner Monastery (A 1 Day workshop with John F. Doherty @ The Sanctuary on Mindfulness and Spiritual Wellbeing)

“Mindfulness and spiritual well-being are interconnected in that they both involve being present and aware in the moment. Mindfulness can lead to greater spiritual well-being by helping individuals to cultivate a greater sense of self-awareness and self-acceptance, which can deepen their connection to something greater than themselves, or the big Self.

Additionally, mindfulness can help individuals to be more attuned to the present moment and their thoughts and feelings, which can lead to a greater sense of inner peace and contentment. This inner peace and contentment can be a key component of spiritual well-being, as it provides a sense of purpose and meaning to one’s life.
Furthermore, mindfulness can also be seen as a form of spiritual practice in itself, as it allows individuals to develop a deeper sense of connection to their own spirit and to the greater universe. By being present and mindful, individuals are able to tap into a greater sense of awareness and inner wisdom, which can help them to better understand their own purpose and meaning in life. In this sense, mindfulness can be seen as a tool for spiritual growth and self-discovery, which can ultimately lead to greater spiritual well-being.”

• An Introduction to Mindfulness and the Field of Spiritual Wellbeing
