Mindfulness in Everyday Life

4 Tuesdays. May 18 to June 8, 6:30pm to 8pm

Mindfulness is the ability to give our undivided attention to the present moment and to wholeheartedly engage with what needs doing. It enhances all experience. In this course we will learn how to apply mindfulness to our day-to-day activities and bring greater joy, depth, and spaciousness into our lives. No experience necessary.

Open to complete beginners and anyone wishing to refresh, support and deepen their practice.

Through discussion of practical Buddhist teachings, along with periods of reflection and meditation, we will clarify and deepen our understanding of what it means to have an effective practice, and build the confidence and inspiration we need to keep it up, while enjoying the positive changes it can bring. 

Sangha Nights Online Oct 7 to 28, 7pm to 9pm

Knowledge speaks, but wisdom listens (attrib to Jimi Hendrix)

Listening can be a powerful tool for connecting and creating a space for transformation. This month a number of Sangha members will explore what listening means to them, what the Buddha and his followers had to say about it, and what makes it helpful and important for us today. 

Oct 7: Beautiful Listening, with Mokshasi

When you listen beautifully the world starts speaking to you in its own voice.

Sangha Nights in February

Our Wednesday Sangha Night Program resumes Feb 6 2019, introducing a new theme for the year - Bringing Everything to the Path.  

How would it be if we could look at everything that happens in our world, including, or perhaps especially, the annoying or difficult things, as tools to help to wake up?  

This year we'll explore this question in many different ways. 

Feb 6: Treasure your Resistances!  With Kulanandi, visiting from Europe

Sangha Nights in December

Traveler, there is no path, the path is made by walking. (Antonio Machado)

The path is you in the process of organizing your mental states in such a way that growth and development take place in a positive direction. (Sangharakshita)

As we approach the end of the year, the winter retreat and the solstice, we will reflect on our practice together and celebrate our intentions as we continue our path. 

Dec 5 and 12: Danadasa will lead these 2 evenings.
