Just one more… with Ajahn Amaro
2 April 2017 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
It is ironic that, in our search for satisfaction, freedom and joy in life, we often find that we have imprisoned ourselves in cycles of compulsion – our longing for fulfilment only resulting in further craving, an endless hunger. We promise ourselves, ‘Just one more…’ yet the longing, the thirsting remains unabated and the cycle begins again.
This meditation day will be an opportunity to explore the nature and function of such cycles, and the means we may use to free the heart from imprisonment by them. The principle framework the Buddha used to describe the addictive process is known as ‘Dependent Origination’ so, during this daylong, this will be used as the matrix around which these reflections and practices on craving, suffering, freedom and altruistic joy are formed.
