DESCRIPTION The Friday practice group is a drop-in session for those who would like to continue their practice with a group sitting in silence. This session will start by observing the five precepts of Buddhism and end with metta meditation. The monks will chant Metta Sutta at the end and practitioners have the opportunity to receive blessings from the monks. This group is mainly for Buddhist practitioners and for those who would like to explore more about Buddhism. There is no requirement to be a Buddhist to attend this Friday group. Participants from all faiths and non faith are welcome.
The aim of this Master class and practice group is to provide support for people who have completed the 8 week MBSR /MBCT courses to maintain their practice. It will give mindfulness practitioners a friendly place to meet their ‘mindful buddies’ and their teachers.
We try to organise this two-hour session on the first Friday of each month. There will be a theme, we are mastering on each month. Some of the well received topics are
-> Mindful Communication
-> Mindful Movement Practice with Qigong and Tai Chi
-> The four Foundations of Mindfulness as taught by Buddha
-> Mindfulness and Neuroplasticity
-> Mindfulness of Breathing
-> Loving-Kindness and Compassion practice
-> Mindfulness at Workplace
The first hour of the session is dedicated to sitting practice with mindful movement practice or Body Scan practice. There is a coffee break for 15 minutes before the second part of the session. The last 45 minutes is focused on the mastering theme and the discussion.
A light refreshment is provided, and you are welcome to bring some sweats/ fruits to share with the group.
Limited places available.
