MINDFULNESS OF THE HEART led by Danapriya

Sholden Village Hall,

Saturday 28th April 1030 to 1630

Bring and share veggie lunch

Our heart gets constricted by our self limiting views, our habitual patterns and our old stories. These all restrict our emotional flow within our life, therefore creates dis-ease.

On this day we will use Mindfulness, Metta, a workshop, poetry, some silence and space to help us enter a realm freer from the suffering we create and learn how to do this in everyday life.

Ugliness and beauty in our experience of things

Posted by bhpruitt to Portsmouth Buddhist Center on Fri, 16 Feb, 2018 - 21:41

Sunday, 9.30am-12pm 
We’re deep into our new series for January and February: Embracing the Winter of Things.

June is Buddhist Action Month! BAM 2018

Posted by Mokshini to Buddhist Action on Fri, 16 Feb, 2018 - 16:45

The theme for BAM 2018 is Transforming Self, Transforming World.

As always, the theme for BAM is inspired by contemporary issues, and this year’s emphasis invites us to stop and look at the big picture: 

It is becoming evident that our society urgently needs a new story, a new myth to live by. As an example. George Monbiot puts it very well in this recent  short interview * where he outlines the need for a psycho-spiritual approach that is thoroughly meaningful and that may...
