    Thursday lunchtime

    Time: 12:15pm – 1:00pm

    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.

     

    Guest teacher for November: Sue Toohey

    Sue Toohey is an experienced Dhamma, meditation and yoga teacher, qualified in both Hatha and Dru styles of yoga. She regularly takes meditation drop-in classes at the Buddhist Library. Formerly a university lecturer in the School of Public Health at UNSW, she has a lifelong interest in using yoga to counteract depression and anxiety and develop mental well-being. She has been a Buddhist practitioner for more than 30 years.

     

    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.
