This session will continue our gentle exploration together of the Sutra on the Full Awareness of Breathing.
Exercise 13 is the first of the four breathings covering ‘objects of mind’ and it brings us to the contemplation of impermanence. As a way to try to bridge the gap between the notion of impermanence and the living insight of impermanence we will learn from each other by sharing our own experiences of change in small deep listening groups.
Although things constantly change they continue in other forms, so we will also explore the ways in which we are continued by our thoughts, words and actions.
The session naturally follows on from previous ones in this series but we hope the session will also work as a stand alone session and all are welcome. It will include guided meditation, walking meditation, readings and sharing in small groups.
NB: Please note that this not specifically a workshop on death, but is about all kinds of change. Participants will be able to choose for themselves which aspect of the topic is most alive for them and share (if they wish) at whatever level feels comfortable for them.
We will also have a mindful lunch together so please bring a little vegetarian or vegan food to share. Tea will be provided. Cushions, mats and blankets are available at the venue, but you are welcome to bring your own if you prefer.
When: Saturday 30th March 2019 – 9:30am to 1:00pm (Please try to arrive a little earlier so that we can start at 09:30)
Where: St. Marks Unitarian Church, Castle Terrace
Booking: Just turn up.
Bring: Small amount of vegetarian food to share if that is easy.
Cost: By donation – to cover the cost of hiring the venue etc. Suggested: £10 (£5).
