Awareness to Insight.
A weekend of meditation and reflection, focusing on Awareness and Right View.
We will explore the relationship between mindfulness and wisdom and look at how a simple practice of ongoing awareness can help us know the nature of reality? We will see how ‘Right View’ as a dharma perspective liberates the mind and heart from dukkha.
Cultivating an awareness that is both receptive and reflexive, we will use the Buddha’s words from the Satipatthana Sutta, to put this profound, yet accessible, teaching into practice.
On Saturday we will explore how and what we’re aware of.
On Sunday we’ll look more at ‘Right View’ and the insight dimension of the practice.
Vajradevi started to meditate in 1985 and was ordained in 1995. She has been practising and teaching mindfulness with a strong insight dimension for many years. To further her practice she has been on a number of long retreats with specialists on Satipatthana, in Burma and the US.
Between 2000-2007 she spear headed Akashavana, our women’s ordination retreat centre, in Spain.
NB: Bring something vegan to share for lunch!
