We will start each session with a brief period of Pali chanting and meditation before we read and reflect on a sutta. Join us for an exploration of...

Uncontrived Mindfulness: ending suffering through attention, curiosity and wisdom

From The Community Toolkit for Uncertain Times on Thu, 22 Jul, 2021 - 10:30

Led by Vajradevi

I’m running another online meditation retreat from Saturday 25th September to Friday 1st October 2021. The retreat is aimed at Order Members and Mitras and is offered on a Dana basis.

The emphasis will be on a relaxed, open, and attentive quality of ‘knowing’, receptive to whatever is happening within our experience. We will be cultivating mindfulness that is ‘uncontrived’ and natural and looking to bring ‘right view’ – a wisdom perspective - to each moment of awareness.

I’ll be drawing on...
