Bodhi College online event
À propos de l'événement
Impermanence (anicca) is one of the three foundational characteristics of existence.
All things that exist are governed by a natural flow: they emerge, evolve, and finally expire. This is the cycle and balance of life - there is birth and death, creation and destruction, growth and decay.
With this instability and inconsistency, stress and tension come into play.
In this day-long workshop we will explore how focusing our attention on the present moment and nurturing a composed and open mind allows us to be more at ease and at peace with this reality. We will practice how to recognize the challenge this natural flow presents to us and how to not react or get caught up in it. We will also explore how an understanding of impermanence can support us in meeting what is difficult and appreciating what is beautiful.
This day of practice at home will consist of periods of sitting and walking meditation and will include dharma talks and Q&A sessions. There will be an optional opportunity to break away into smaller groups to discuss one's practice with the teachers.
While a familiarity with basic mindfulness meditation is a prerequisite, this workshop is open to all levels from beginners to more experienced meditators.
A one day workshop from 10 to 17 CEST
Open to all - new and experienced practitioners alike

Dāna : la pratique du don
Selon la tradition Dana telle qu'elle existe en Asie du Sud-Est, les enseignements sont considérés comme trop précieux pour être vendus et les enseignements de qualité restent ainsi accessibles à tous. Les enseignants dépendent pour leur subsistance des dons offerts gratuitement à la fin du cours.
