Meditation, Buddhism and discussion led by a group of young Buddhists, with an experienced teacher joining us each month. In July, LBC Chair Suryagupta explores the Buddha’s kind but uncompromising response to grief and loss.
How do you keep your meditation practice alive and vigorous so that you remain alert, open and aware? Learn how to work in meditation to keep these qualities alive over five lunchtime drop-in classes. Come to all five classes or just as many as you can.
Through meditation, silence, reflection, ritual and poetry we will try to approach realms ‘beyond the reach of thought’. There will be plenty of opportunity to deepen into meditation, supported by one-to-one reviews and long periods of silence.
In a world where there is so much suffering and where the problems are so complex and inter-related, how do we make positive contribution without falling prey to despair, resentment and blame? Jnanavaca will explore a dharmic perspective on dukkha and what we can do to live a meaningful life in the face of it.
Recently returned from leading a four-month ordination retreat, join Maitreyabandhu for this intensive morning exploring how the cultivation of a ‘fit mind’ and a ‘fit heart’ can help us to see into the truth of reality more and more deeply.
Ordination is a highly significant aspect of the Dharma life which has the potential to radically transform the lives of many. In this special celebratory and devotional evening will welcome back Ksantikara (ex-Alex), Devaghosa (ex-Barry) and Padmapalita (ex-Todd) who will have recently returned from a long ordination retreat in Spain.
