Description

Co-organised workshop between Buddhist Library Ltd and Association of Engaged Buddhists

 

Mindfulness has become a very fashionable word in recent years.  But what does it mean to truly practice mindfulness?  Can it be successfully practiced in isolation, without putting into practice the rest of the Buddha’s teachings?  Join us to explore this topic.

 

Saturday 6th May

2pm – 4pm

This is a Free Public Event

 

All Sessions by Dana.

Dana is the traditional practice of generosity, the extending of one’s goodwill, which is fundamental to Buddhism and other spiritual traditions. The teachings flourish in an atmosphere of generosity and gratitude, and these qualities in turn support the growth of wisdom and compassion in the practitioner. The instructions and guidance for this course are offered without requesting a specified fee and it is up to individuals to determine the amount of dana they would like to offer. It can sometimes be easy to become confused when we are new to this and we wonder “how much should I give?” This is a relevant question in the material economy but an appropriate dana cannot be prescribed but requires sensitivity to its intent and awareness of the costs and expenses associated with organising a course (e.g., administrative & venue costs).
