    Weekly Mindfulness Meditation Group Practice allows you to practice meditation with others and to perhaps also establish and strengthen your own meditation practice. For those of you who have done the Insight Meditation, Absolute Beginners Meditation or Mindfulness Meditation course at the Buddhist Library, this class is an excellent way to continue and build on the skills you have learnt.

    Each month we will invite a guest teacher to facilitate the meditation practice. On the rare occasions when the teacher isn’ present, we’ll play a guided meditation recording and sit together.

    Come once, come every week to this informal gathering of meditation.

     

    November Guest Teacher: Sister Sudhira

    Venerable Sister Sudhira Bhikkhuni took her novice ordination in 2000 and her higher ordination as a full bhikkuni in July 2004 under the Most Venerable Rahatungoda Saddha Sumana, a senior Bhikkhuni from a small nunnery in Eheliyagoda, Sri Lanka. Sister is currently based in Sydney and holds a chaplaincy position at the Prince of Wales Hospital and generously gives her time as a volunteer at the Buddhist Library. A very personable and gentle teacher, Sister brings to her teaching a deep sense of kindness and compassion.

     

    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 instructions and guidance for this course are offered without requesting a 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.
