About the event

This workshop is led by Master Tan, a Traditional Thai Massage healer and teacher based in Germany. It will give participants the opportunity to learn about and practise some of the foundations of meditation originating from the Buddha’s teaching. These foundations will help us to become present in our daily lives and  aware of our most everyday actions, understanding the sense of how meditation philosophy is applicable to each part of your daily life.

The central idea of this concept is that as we move through the day and our lives, we should aim to maintain an inner calm, an inner balance. In this workshop Master Tan will guide participants through activities which will help them practise this.

This workshop can be taken on its own, but we see in as being very much connected to our second workshop, 

Movement in Stillness (Day 2).

About Master Tan, a Traditional Thai Massage healer and teacher:

Tan is a traditional Thai massage healer and teacher based in Germany, with many years of experience, and he wishes to share his compassion in Thai massage and Buddhist practice. He has taught various aspects of Thai massage healing and mindfulness and meditation in many countries in Europe. He travelled to Lochwinnoch in 2022 to deliver sold-out mediation workshops as part of last year's Feel Good Festival. All workshops were organised in partnerhsip with Moonie, Thamma Thai Wellness, Lochwinnoch. Tan and his Team entered the World Massage Championship 2023 - International Massage Association where Tan won first place across the multipdisciplne competition, with many of his pupils also scooping up prizes and places in various categories.

Master Tan, along with other members of Thamma's incredible network and Tan Massage Academy, who are travelling from across Europe, can be met at our Wellbeing Fair where they will be offering free Thai Massage Taster Treatments. We're so excited to have them invovled in this year's festival.

Some feedback from last year's Mindfulness of the Body workshop

“His teaching is straight to the point.. he just says it as it is.. I find that easy to understand.

His practical examples of what Meditation is was excellent and very effective and the fact we all got to walk outside in our bare feet definitely wakened us up. From now on I know what to do when I need to stop and think!” 

“So for me the session was really helpful to highlight that meditation can be found everywhere and is not about needing to be in a room, lying down with calming music. The session outside about finding warmth when you were cold was also very good. I'm not sure where the improvement from Tan could come from as he provided humour and gave me lots to consider and take forward. Maybe some more ways to take it into your daily life if you were looking for more input…” 

“I was thoroughly fascinated by the meditation event. Very interesting… It seemed to me at the beginning of the event that that was Tan’s general approach to it. It was to be a practical thing. That then seemed to be expressed by the wee exercise with the candles, which seemed a good way to show you something, to get you thinking, and then to get you doing… All in, I think it was a splendid thing. It had some entertainment, some information, some philosophical musing (nearly), some wee stories, some practical bits, some hard-edged experience… all good things to set off the meditation ball rolling for folk, get them engaged.” 

Freeform workshop type: The workshop has been adapted to suit individual needs. Whether you are a novice or an expert, the workshop is also designed to suit all levels.
