Meditation Tuesday - Imagination And Empathy In Action

Posted by Candradasa to Online Meditators on Mon, 20 Jun, 2016 - 19:45

This week we’ll be looking at bridging the gap between imagination and action. In a difficult week around the world with extreme violence near at hand, we’ll be engaging with Metta (loving kindness) as a radical way to connect with others, and calling forth a sense of urgency to explore together how we might help bring forth a more peaceful world. Come and help us build our meditative community, and take a stand for deep kindness and compassion in the...

Satyaraja and Kamalashila talk about meditation

Posted by Saccanama to The College of Public Preceptors on Wed, 16 Mar, 2016 - 13:27

In the last of our audio interviews from the March 2016 Preceptors’ College meeting, Satyaraja and Kamalashila share some reflections about their personal practice of meditation. It’s a lovely discussion between two people who are dedicated to meditation as a key way to work with the mind and discover more deeply the nature of it. We hear particularly about the devotional aspects of meditation, which is another way into the idea of insight itself. And about meditation retreats - solitary and...

Meditation Workshop - Five Breaths

Posted by Free Buddhist Audio to Buddhist Centre Features on Thu, 1 Oct, 2015 - 23:28

As a companion to her talk, The Possibility of Practice and her guided Meditation on the Three Bodies (physical, emotional, and mental) this workshop is indispensable. Amaragita explodes and expands notions around the practice of paying attention via awareness of the breath, using the deceptively simple exercise of taking just five breaths through the day. 

We hear how the practice relates to the theory of Buddhist meditation and are encouraged to choose and learn from our direct experience...
