Event Details

Experiencing the Buddha’s Teachings: Meditations on the Stages of the Path to Enlightenment
Preparing the Foundation – Essential Practices for Spiritual Realisation
To gain a realisation is to bring about a profound shift in our perspective. We will see the people and events in our life differently, which also means we will think, feel and respond differently to them. We step out of our old reactive habits and find ourselves responding with kindness and wisdom. In “Preparing the Foundation,” we will look at how to support this with the essential practices – calming down our body and mind, removing the obstacles, gathering positive momentum, and inspiring our heart-mind.
The teaching on Stages of the Path to Enlightenment (or Lam Rim in Tibetan) presents a graduated way of learning and practising the teachings of the Buddha in a systematic way. By reflecting and meditating on topics like refuge and karma, we can gradually enhance our positive qualities of kindness and wisdom, and lessen the hold of our harmful habits. In this series, we will look at the practical aspects of how to meditate on the different Buddhist topics effectively. Each weekly session will include an explanation of the topic and pointers on how to work with it in both meditation and daily life, guided meditations to experience the topic for ourselves, and time for discussion and Q&A.
Prerequisites: none; all are welcome.
People who have studied the Discovering Buddhism course and are looking to go into more depth may appreciate this series. As may those who have been exploring meditation and would like to bring more of the Buddhas teachings into their practice.
