Moonday meditations with Dānayuttā

Dates

Wednesday 13th June 6.45 – 8.00am
Thursday 28th June 6.45 – 8.00am
Friday 13th July 6.45 – 8.00am

Open to all.

Yoga and meditation are complementary practices – practising yoga asanas allows us to be physically fit and supple enough to be still in meditation, while meditation trains the mind to be focussed, pliable and compassionate, bringing space, steadiness and clarity to our asana practice. Practising meditation helps us to live fully and vividly, in connection with others, transforming ourselves and the world around us.

In the next few sessions, we’ll be focusing on the meditations that in Buddhism are known as The Four Mind Turnings – appreciating the preciousness of human life and realising the certainty of death; karma and the faults of conditioned existence. Sometimes these teachings are known as The Preliminaries – the understanding of which is the basis on which spiritual development and training take place. Sometimes these teachings are known as the Four Thoughts That Touch The Heart. These wisdom teachings try to show us a way seeing and being that lead to a happier, fulfilled and meaningful life.
