Each session will include a guided meditation, a Dharma talk, as well as time for questions, answers and discussion.
1) Wise view - 13 January
How do we live with ease in the midst of an uncertain and changing world? In this talk, we’ll explore the ‘three characteristics’ of existence described in the Buddhist tradition and explore how we can find wise responses to the challenges of living in an unpredictable world.
2) The factors of awakening - 17 February
How can we deepen the calm and understanding that meditation brings? In this talk, we’ll explore the ‘seven factors of awakening’. We’ll discuss how cultivating joy and interest in our practice is a doorway to states of calm and balance.
3) Friendliness - 17 March
How do we bring a warm heart to whatever arises in our experience? In this talk, we’ll explore the practice of ‘metta’, translated as ‘loving-kindness’ or friendliness. We’ll discuss how to be more friendly with our experience and other people.
4) Compassion - 21 April
How can we stay open in the midst of the pain and suffering of the world? In this talk, we’ll explore classical and contemporary approaches to compassion. We’ll discuss how we can bring care and be kind to ourselves and others in the midst of life’s challenges.
5) Joy - 12 May
How can we deepen a sense of joy and appreciation? In this talk, we’ll explore practices to cultivate a sense of joy and gratitude. We’ll discuss how to step out threat-focused perceptions and to open to the beauty of life.
6) Equanimity - 16 June
How can we find balance amidst the ups and down of life? In this talk, we’ll explore how life continually brings us opposites: pain as well as pleasure, loss as well as gain. We’ll discuss how to meet these changes with an open and free heart.
