About the workshop
Join us if you would like to kick-start a meditation practice - or if you would like new insights and fresh perspectives to deepen your existing practice! You are not required to be able to sit in lotus pose on a meditation cushion - chairs are available, too, to make Martine's great teachings accessible to everyone.
Letting go in four stages
We will practice mindfulness meditation to develop our potential for letting go. We will explore the different ways we can let go by developing stability, calmness and openness, by cultivating understanding, by exploring our triggers, habits and conditions and by being mindful of our felt experience.

About Martine Batchelor
Martine Batchelor was born in France in 1953. She was ordained as a Buddhist nun in Korea in 1975. She studied Zen Buddhism under the guidance of the late Master Kusan at Songgwang Sa monastery until 1984. Her Zen training also took her to nunneries in Taiwan and Japan. From 1981 she served as Kusan Sunim's interpreter and accompanied him on lecture tours throughout the United States and Europe. She translated his book "The Way of Korean Zen". Following Master Kusan's death she returned her nun's vows and left Korea.
She returned to Europe with her husband, Stephen, in 1985. She was a member of the Sharpham North Community in Devon, England for six years. She worked as a lecturer and spiritual counsellor both at Gaia House and elsewhere in Britain. She was also involved in interfaith dialogue and was a Trustee of the International Sacred Literature Trust until 2000.
In 1992 she published, as co-editor, Buddhism and Ecology. In 1996 she published, as editor, Walking on Lotus Flowers which in 2001 was reissued under the title Women on the Buddhist Path. She is the author of Principles of Zen, Meditation for Life (an illustrated book on meditation), The Path of Compassion (a translation from the Korean, with reference to the original Chinese, of the Brahmajala Sutra, i.e. the Bodhisattva Precepts), Women in Korean Zen, Let Go: A Buddhist Guide to Breaking Free of Habits, and most recently The Spirit of the Buddha.
With her husband she co-leads meditation retreats worldwide. They now live in France.
She has written various articles for magazines on the Korean way of tea, Buddhism and women, Buddhism and ecology, Zen cooking and Mindfulness. She is interested in meditation in daily life, Buddhism and social action, religion and women's issues, Zen and its history, factual and legendary.
This workshop is for everybody who would like to establish a meditation practise or go deeper into an established meditation practise.
