Meditation day: Contemplating our Experience with Mindfulness

  • All welcome. No charge, suggested donation £25

We will spend this day retreat to explore the question, what does it mean to live mindfully? Using the Satipatthana Sutta, a key Buddhist text, as a foundation we’ll explore our experience of mindfulness in the body, feelings, thoughts, and “dharmas” . There will be talks, meditation and sharing.  “The problem of how to be mindful is actually resolved not through strenuous effort but by allowing and observing what is already here.”

Open to anyone who has a basic understanding of Buddhism (eg from an Introduction to Buddhism course), and has learnt to meditate.  Please contact the Centre if you’re unsure whether this day is suitable for you.

Please bring vegan lunch to share.
