Description

Serenity and Insight Meditation Weekend 27-29 March 2020


PUBLIC TALK | FRIDAY 29 MARCH 2020 | 7.30pm- 9.00pm

  • Cost: $10.


WEEKEND WORKSHOP | FRI 27th 7.30-9.00pm | SAT 28th - SUN 29th MARCH 2020 | 9.30am- 4.30pm


The Buddha compared meditation to a bird in flight, and a bird needs two wings to fly. These wings are serenity and insight. Serenity concerns the state of our heart, the degree to which it is calm, composed, peaceful and tranquil. Insight concerns the state of our mind, the degree to which it is clear, discerning, understanding and mature. Together, serenity and insight give us a framework for cultivating the whole person. During this weekend we will explore early Buddhist teachings on serenity and insight, and apply them to our own practice and personalities. How do these two wings feel within our own hearts and minds? Where do our own inclinations lie, toward serenity or insight? As we become familiar with how these wings move our own lives, we discover much about how we ourselves face the world.

Participants should wear loose and comfortable clothing, suitable for yoga/bodywork and bring their cushions and other preferred supports for meditation practice. Chairs will be available.

Costs:

  • $120 full weekend ($100 concession or early bird if book before 31 Jan 2020).

  • $50 Saturday only

  • $60 Friday evening & Saturday

  • Morning tea will be provided

  • To keep prices down, please bring your own lunch (we are not near shops)
