NEW: Not About Being Good

Monthly Saturdays. 10.30 - 1.00pm. Open to All.

Aberystwyth Quaker Meeting House. 

 

March 23rd Sraddhadipa, April 27th Akasharaja, May 25th Maitrisiddhi, June 15th Vidyamani, July 20th Satyacitta.

In these mornings we will be focusing on Buddhist Ethics, following a course by Subhadramati. 'No-one wants to feel like they're being told what to do - we like to think we know what's best for ourselves and others. The trouble is, our life doesn't always bear that out. A key Buddhist insight is that consciousness isn't fixed; we're creating it all the time by our actions of body, speech and mind. This means we can shape our future.’

This is an excellent introduction to and exploration of the particular flavour and emphasis of Buddhist ethics, and how that supports us in our practice.

Suitable for all, with or without meditation experience. Just turn up.

All are welcome to stay for lunch. Bring your own food, and/or vegan food to share.

NEW: Mind, Reactive and Creative

Monthly Saturdays. 2.00 - 4.30/5.00pm. For regulars.

Aberystwyth Quaker Meeting House. 

 

March 23rd Sraddhadipa, April 27th Akasharaja, May 25th Maitrisiddhi, June 15th Vidyamani, July 20th Satyacitta.

A practical course in creativity- One of the Buddha’s key insights is that our state of mind conditions our thoughts, which in turn condition our actions, and thereby our world.

This course explores the idea that the mind operates in two very different ways, and that the spiritual life is essentially a movement from one to the other. We have the choice of being either reactive or creative, not just once, but at every moment. We will investigate just what that means in our own lives, looking at ways in which we can become less reactive and more creative, with a combination of teaching, discussion, meditation and practical exercises.

The path to Enlightenment, then, is one of ever-increasing creativity, and we look at one of the Buddha’s teachings in which he describes a sequence of ever-increasing creative states of mind, all the way to Enlightenment. Suitable for regulars.

All are welcome to lunch at 1.00. Bring your own food, and/or vegan food to share.

If you are new to meditation, and have any health issues, (physical, emotional or mental), that could affect your participation in our sessions, feel free to contact us on westwalesbuddhistgroup@gmail.com and ask to talk confidentially to one of our Order members, who will help you decide whether to attend.
