Sundays, 6pm in Brisbane
Developing a meditation practice is so much easier with the support of a group. Every Sunday evening from 6pm – 8pm, join us as we explore the liberating insights and practices taught by the Buddha. Each week we host experienced contemporary meditation teachers, who give talks on various aspects of the practice.
We sit together at Haiku Arts and Yoga Studio which is located just under the ‘Wrapture’ restaurant on Russell St, a few doors down from West End post office. Head down the concrete ramp and open the sliding door.
The Buddha taught that craving is a root cause of suffering, and that meditation is part of the path to freedom from the cycle of attachment and habitual behaviour. The 11th Step of Alcoholics Anonymous also points to the power of meditation in creating positive change in our lives. In this workshop, we’ll explore ways that mindfulness and compassion can support abstinence from habitual substances or behaviours that cause harm.
Open to people in any form of recovery and suitable for those who are new to meditation. There will be periods of guided meditation, group discussion, and community building.
Please message lulu with questions. Suggested donation $10 – $20.
Please join us for a weekend of deepening practice, within the context of our householder lives. We’ll explore how we find meaning, relevance, and support on our path from the Buddha, the Dharma, and the Sangha. There will be time to connect with other community members, whilst Saturday will be primarily a day of Noble Silence.
Accommodation: Simple shared indoor sleeping quarters available, as well as the opportunity to tent camp on the Bodhi Chan grounds.
Cost: $160 for accommodation, including vegetarian meals.
