‘Knowing the way by heart’
A day of Mindful awareness based on the Four Foundations of Mindfulness
Sunday 9th October 2016.
Teacher: Christine Thompson
Venue: Jindii EcoSpa
Australian National Botanic Gardens
Clunies Ross Street, Canberra 
 
You are invited to share in a day of silence and mindful communication at The Friends Meeting House, 17 Bent Street, Turner. Canberra from 9am to 5pm. We will explore through a range of meditation techniques natural ways of being. We will use Mindfulness of breathing and body as gentle reminders of the simplicity and beauty of existence. We will explore our feelings of dissatisfaction and worry, by sitting with body/mind sensations without judging, as they arise. In this way we will work towards being more in touch and grounded and able to recognise thought patterns and processes which are not useful and create suffering for ourselves and others. This day of mindfulness practice offers the opportunity to establish a deep connection to an expansive silence and awareness based on Buddhist ethics and philosophy.
 
The day of practice includes
Meditation instructions • Sitting and walking meditation • Q&A • A Dharma talk • Loving Kindness meditation
 
What to bring:
Please bring cushions if sitting on the floor • Bring with you shawl, blanket, yoga mat for lying down • Please bring a vegetarian dish to share for lunch
