A jewel of a talk from Dhammadinna on how to cultivate a practice of reflection on the qualities of the Buddha that is relevant to your life experience, and your own culture. Taking as her theme, ‘Re-imagining the Buddha’, she opens up several key areas for us to contemplate - not least the practice of ‘waiting’ to let the images come to us.

This talk closes with a marvellous evocation of ‘felt presence’ (so key to any visualisation meditation practice) by way of the famous ‘Piper At the Gates of Dawn’ chapter, from ‘The Wind In The Willows’ by Kenneth Grahame. Not to be missed!
