t’s a big deal for us in our culture don’t your reckon? Family, Christmas dinner, partying, gift giving and for some an important event in the Christian calendar.
Whilst it doesn’t have any special significance for Buddhists one can still view it as an important cultural celebration; a time when we can open our hearts to others and practice kindness and generosity……
As a meditator I’m interested in staying steady and creative through this period and plotting my own course through the many shapes and forms the silly season can manifest.
I don’t feel compelled to shy away from nor engage with Christmas celebrations but rather keep the pilot light of awareness shining brightly and find my own responses and ways of getting involved with what’s on offer ….
I hope you have a really happy and peaceful Christmas
I’m in Coogee for Christmas and will be having a Christmas night sit at the Croquet Club so feel free to join me if that feels like a nice thing to do at the end of Christmas day
Christmas Day 7 – 8.30 pm metta bhavana practice – sending our loving kindness to the world!
