Description

Strengthening the two wings of Awakening: Wisdom and Compassion

This two-day non-residential workshop will provide an opportunity to strengthen both the wisdom and the compassion wings of awakening. We will explore a variety of different practices taken from the Four Foundations of Mindfulness, alongside the four brahma-vihara heart practices of kindness, compassion, joy, and equanimity.

Each day, there will be sessions of guided and silent sitting meditation, walking meditation, group discussion, optional individual meetings with the teacher and a period of optional, gentle mindful movement.

Experience level: This workshop is suitable for people who have some familiarity with mindfulness and/or insight meditation practice.
Pre-requisite at least one previous insight meditation one-day workshop.

Food: Please bring your own lunch. Teas and herbal teas will be supplied.

Equipment: Some chairs will be available, but please bring your own meditation cushion or bench if you have one, and a shawl or blanket.

Times:

Saturday 10:30-5:30 pm - Wisdom

Sunday 9:30-4:30 pm - Compassion

NOTE: In support of our group practice, please arrive 15 minutes early to settle in for a prompt start, and make a commitment to stay for the full day, each day.

One-day option: A limited number of places will be available for people to attend just the first day, Saturday, for the teachings on Wisdom. It is not possible to attend only the second day, on Compassion.

Newcastle contact person: Donna Lavell email dlavell@idl.net.au or phone 041 254 1393

Cost: $80 / $50 registration fee + dana/donation* to the teacher

*The registration fee covers a contribution to the venue hire, the teacher's travel expenses, and admin costs.

In keeping with Buddhist tradition, the teachings are offered on a dana basis which means the teachers are not paid to offer this workshop. Instead, they rely on the generosity of the participants to help them continue to share their teachings with others, and there will be an opportunity at the end of each day to offer donations to support Jill's ongoing teaching.
