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.

Cost is by donation. The teachings are considered beyond a monetary value so instead the tradition of dana (generosity) is practiced. Those that wish to support the continuation of the group and the teacher’s offerings, can do so via donation boxes on the night.

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.

Please bring along a small nibble to share, any dharma books or materials (eg: Buddha figurines, meditation cushions) you’re ready to offer to a good home at a dharma-swap, and any friends who might be looking for a friendly, low-key group with whom to mark the turning of the year.

Lyndi Smith – Intentions
Jan 6 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

 

January is often a time to ‘set intentions’ for the coming year. What are intentions? Is there a difference between intentions and expectations? And how can we live our intentions, in the present moment, with kindness and compassion?
We’ll explore what the Buddha said about intentions, and how we can tune into our heart’s wishes for ourselves in the year ahead, and in our meditation practice.

Lyndi Smith has been practising for eleven years and instructing for six. For a couple of years, she lived at retreat centres. Her training is in both traditional and secular mindfulness, and her favourite teachers come from Tibetan Buddhist and Insight communities. She is a trained Mindful Self-Compassion teacher and teaches mindfulness in schools, on teen retreats and in workplaces.
