Mindfulness All Flavours! Week 1: Sati

By Candradasa on Mon, 24 Nov, 2014 - 20:34Join us for our first flavour of mindfulness…

Over the next four Tuesdays, our course for regular meditators will be looking at mindfulness (sati, sampajanna, appamada, call-it-what-you-will!) in the context of the Five Spiritual Faculties. This will also give us a chance to explore the area of ‘breadth and focus’ in meditation, as well as generally develop and maybe even flex the great heart muscle of the spiritual life - “with mindfulness, strive on!”

Tuesdays until...
