Fundamentals of buddhism – freeing the heart with Jake Dartington

21 April 2018 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

This is one of a series of three workshops exploring the Buddha’s teaching of the eightfold path (the other two take place on 24th February and 21st March). Through dharma talks, meditation and discussion, we will reflect on wise effort, mindfulness and concentration.  We will consider what it means to make effort in our practice and explore the distinction between wholesome and unwholesome states of mind.  We will give an overview of the four ways of establishing mindfulness and consider different perspectives on the role of states of calm, concentration and absorption in our path. The workshop will particularly focus on the practical application of these teachings in our everyday lives and is suitable for beginners as well as those with more experience.
