Taming the Tiger: Train Your Mind Through Meditation
Friday 10th to Sunday 12th October, 2025
In this context, “taming the tiger” metaphorically refers to gaining control over one’s inner struggles, emotions, and thoughts, much like taming a powerful and potentially dangerous animal. Our mind has the power to make us happy or unhappy, patient or angry, uplifted or depressed; if we learn to skilfully tame it in meditation we have the power and mental freedom to direct our life towards peace, happiness, and content. This retreat will privde inspiration, guidance and encourage to the tame the tiger within!
