Giving from the Heart half-day course with Susan Tait
Saturday 1 December | 10am – 1pm
This course will explore the Buddhist approach to authentic generosity. By learning to cultivate a mind of loving kindness and then expressing this mind in practical actions we can accumulate a great wealth of positive karma, bring increasing benefit to others and overcome many of our daily problems. By learning to engage in these mental trainings we can transform all our encounters with others into something meaningful and beneficial.
The course will include several guided meditations derived from the “Lojong” or “mind-training” tradition that can be reproduced at home, practical teachings that are directly relevant to modern life and an opportunity to ask questions.
This course is suitable for everyone from complete beginners to experienced meditators.
What will each session consist of?
Each session will include a combination of teachings and guided meditations with an opportunity to ask questions at the end and socialize with like-minded people during the break time.
Do I need to bring anything or wear anything special?
No. All sessions will take place on chairs but there are optional cushions if you prefer to sit cross-legged. You don’t need to bring anything else with you, but some people like to take notes during the session, so feel free to bring a paper and pen.
What if I’m new to this?
Everyone is welcome to participate in this course and will benefit both new and experienced people alike. Our reception staff will happily recommend some follow on reading or classes after the course if you are interested.
