Awareness to Insight: A day of meditation and reflection with Vajradevi, focusing on Awareness and Right View
Sunday 24 September, 10.00am – 4.30pm
What is the relationship between mindfulness and wisdom? How can a simple practice of ongoing awareness help us know the nature of reality? How can Right View, or Dharma perspective, liberate the mind and heart from dukkha?
Cultivating an awareness that is both receptive and reflexive, we will use the Buddha’s words from the Satipatthana Sutta, to put this profound yet accessible teaching into practice.
Open to men and women with at least 6 months experience of Triratna meditations.
Please bring vegetarian/vegan food to share for lunch. Like all our sangha events the day is run by donation, please contribute to Vajradevi’s travel expenses and support the Buddhist Centre to continue to communicate the Dharma across the West Midlands.
