This month’s theme: the body in Buddhism and meditation

As human beings our body is a central part of our experience, but it is very easy in our culture to lose touch with this.  Smartphones, technology in general, and the pace of life in London all encourage this disconnection, and this can have negative consequences. Buddhism has a lot to say about the importance of being aware of the body, and provides techniques to help us reconnect with bodily experience. This evening we will explore some of these techniques, and how these can be relevant for us as young people in 21st century London.
