    This weekly Mindfulness Meditation Practice allows you to meditate with others every Thursday lunchtime, either at the Library or online via Zoom. Whether you’re a beginner or experienced, this drop-in class will help support you in establishing and strengthening your practice at this time.

    Each month we invite a guest teacher to facilitate the meditation practice. Come once, come every week – OR if you prefer, connect once, connect every week – for this informal gathering.

    Please register if you want to attend either in person or online.

     

    Guest teacher for May: Chand R. Sirimanne

    Chand currently works as a writer and researcher and her main interest is in Buddhist meditation, psychology and ethics. Although she comes from a traditional Buddhist country and her educational background is in languages, she became deeply interested in meditation around 2001 through the influence of Western monks and nuns, particularly Ajahn Brahm. Chand currently teaches meditation and works as researcher/writer and the focus of her interest is the mental and physical therapeutic potential of Buddhist meditation. She looks at how best to go beyond popular secular mindfulness to strengthen the mind and improve its emotional landscape using the many different meditative practices available in Buddhism and its system of ethics and philosophy.

     

    All Sessions are by Donation (Dana) to the Buddhist Library. All donations to the Buddhist Library of $2 and over are tax deductible.

    Dana is the traditional practice of generosity, the extending of one’s goodwill, which is fundamental to Buddhism and other spiritual traditions. The Library offers events and classes without requesting a fee and it’s up to each person to determine the amount of dana they’d like to offer. We understand that this is a difficult time financially for many, and people will give what they can. An appropriate dana can’t be prescribed but requires sensitivity to its intent and to the individual’s own situation, as well as awareness of the cost of organising events and supporting teachers to spread the Dhamma.
