Women Mitras and Order Members Day
Sun 9th Dec, 2018 : 10:00 am - 4:30 pmFree
A day of meditation, discussion and spiritual friendship for women Mitras and Order Members in the Triratna Buddhist Community, led by Vairocani, supported by Sarasuvanna and Janet Hill.
Creative Approaches to the Metta Bhavana
The focus will be on finding creative ways to engage with the metta bhavana practice. We will be exploring how to turn towards our experience, whatever it is, with kindness and creative enquiry. We will explore kindness towards ourselves through the body, the imagination, through words and reflection. There will be three personal talks, a puja and a chance to spend time together and share what we love.
The creative mind loves where there is no reason to love, is happy where there is no reason for happiness, creates where there is no possibility of creativity and in this way “builds a heaven in hell’s despair”.
