Unwind and Empower: A Weekend Retreat for Cultivating Emotional Balance and Resilience: with Corey Jackson

21/07/2023 @ 6:30 pm - 23/07/2023 @ 2:15 pm AEST



The 21st century is a stressful time to be alive. With feelings of anxiety and overwhelm becoming the norm, it’s easy to feel like we’ve lost our sense of purpose and direction, but most self-care advice rarely offers more than band-aid solutions.

At this retreat, you’ll dive deep into understanding the root causes of your anxiety and stress and learn how to turn them from destructive to constructive. You’ll learn a combination of evidence-based research on emotions and Buddhist approaches to mental health that put you in the driver’s seat of your stress, relationships, and emotional reactions.

The weekend will be run in the format of a meditation retreat. With a mix of theory and hands-on techniques, you’ll take away strategies to keep calm under pressure and be in control of your life, relationships, and responsibilities. Don’t miss this opportunity to invest in your emotional well-being and rediscover a sense of purpose and control in your life.

About the facilitator

Comfortable in a research lab or mountain monastery, Corey Jackson’s work and research sits at the intersection of scientific and contemplative traditions.

Corey is a Ph.D. candidate researching the underlying causes of anxiety, depression, and emotional dysfunction. His research is the culmination of a degree in Psychology and Sanskrit plus more than twenty years studying and translating Buddhist philosophy from Tibetan to English.

These days he works as a mental health researcher, meditation teacher, stress and mindfulness coach.

Before any of this, he was a jazz pianist in Toronto, Canada.
