Sometimes in our culture the focus is on having a happy life: being stress-free and having lots of varied and pleasurable experiences. And being a kind on occasion. Is that the same as a beautiful life? Or could there be something more? What do values have to do with this? And are we called in some way to live a beautiful life?
Victor has been practising meditation for thirty five years. He’s spent over two years in total in silent retreats and has taken dharma teaching roles since the late 1990s. He was co-founder of Sydney Insight Meditators and was for a decade chair of a small overseas aid organisation: the Bodhgaya Development Association. He also trained in Gestalt Therapy and worked for years as a counselor.
He writes: These days my passions in teaching – and practice – include: exploring how we respond to climate breakdown and the loss of species; looking at ways that we get often stuck with particular concepts of self and world and stuck with particular meditation practices. My intention is to open up freeing and soulful possibilities for people.
