GO TO THE PLACES THAT SCARE YOU An afternoon of guided meditation and discussion led by Jean Wilkins

This saying by the 12th century Tibetan teacher, Machik Lobron, invites us to look at what we would rather turn away from and embrace what we are afraid of. With that in mind, we will take time to explore together what supports us in turning towards, rather than away from, our fear of death.

 A Nun who Became an Arahat:

With Bhante Bodhidhamma

A talk by Bhante Bodhidhamma Sunday 15th May 3pm-5pm

In the words of Mae Chee Kaew: ‘Body, mind and essence are all distinct and separate realities. Absolutely everything is known – earth, water, fire and wind; body, feeling, memory, thought and consciousness; sounds, sights, smells, tastes, touches, and emotions; anger, greed, and delusion – all are known. I know them all as they exist in their own natural states. But no matter how much I am exposed to them, I am unable to detect even an instant when they have any power over my heart. They arise and cease. They are forever changing. But the presence that knows them never changes for an instant. It is forever unborn and undying. This is the end of all suffering.’

 The Perfection of Wisdom

With Ringu Tulku Rinpoche

Tibetan Buddhist Teaching: The Perfection of Wisdom with Ringu Tulku Rinpoche

Thursday June 16th - 3.30 pm

The Six Paramitas are at the heart of all the actions of a bodhisattva, of someone who is training to truly work for others. The sixth is the Perfection of Wisdom, seeing the truth as it is, seeing things as they really are. Four reasons are given as to why we do not see the true enlightened nature of our mind. It is too easy, too near, too good and too deep.
