The Poppy Seed Sangha are planning a Mindfulness Day on Sunday 2nd October 2016

We are delighted to let you know that The Poppy Seed Sangha are planning a Mindfulness Day on Sunday 2nd October from 10am until 3.30pm at their usual Poppy Seed Sangha venue of Westbank Centre in Cash Feus, Strathmiglo, Fife, KY14 7QP.

The theme for the day will be “non-discrimination and inclusiveness” as described in the first mindfulness training: “I will cultivate openness, non-discrimination, and non-attachment to views in order to transform violence, fanaticism, and dogmatism in myself and in the world”. Our day of practice together will include listening to a talk or reading; walking meditation in the orchard (weather permitting); a guided and silent meditation and time for Dharma sharing.

If you can, please bring something to share for a vegetarian lunch along with your own crockery and cutlery. We will provide a selection of teas to drink.

Please bring weather appropriate clothes for walking meditation outside. We do have some chairs and a few meditation cushions, stools and blankets but you may wish to bring your own if you have one.

There is no charge for the day but a contribution of £5-10 (or what you can afford), toward the room rent, would be appreciated. Please do not let lack of funds deter you, all are welcome.

Arrival is any time between 10am and 10.30am to allow time for tea and hellos.

Here is the website and address for Westbank if you haven’t been before. We would recommend parking on the street close to the centre as opposed to up the lane which can get congested and prevent the owners from accessing their house.

Please let us know if you are coming (or ask any questions) by emailing Orla at orla.beaton@btinternet.com
