Meditation and Compassion in Our Daily Life:
Tibetan Buddhism in Action
A weekly programme held on a weeknight throughout the year.
Open to those who are new as well as those who have done previous studies at Rigpa.
Our next module starts 10 Oct, 2017
Throughout the year, Meditation and Compassion in Our Daily Life modules introduce:
- The foundation of the wisdom teachings of Buddha which include impermanence and how it affects us along with the principles of interdependence and emptiness. Understanding these can be a powerful guide in finding happiness in our daily lives.
- Methods to work with our heart and mind, starting from wherever we find ourselves now, to discover our own potential for love and compassion.
- Authentic meditation techniques are woven throughout the modules, developing our experience of peace and clarity of mind including the rich and rewarding compassion practices of loving kindness and the four immeasurables; simple practices that help others.
Wisdom and compassion are considered as being inseparable in Buddhism and it is how we work with these in our daily lives that provides the proof of the truth of Buddha’s timeless teachings. Throughout this programme, we will explore the ancient teachings of this unbroken lineage, experiencing their wisdom directly through the application of authentic methods that help us to develop confidence, capacity and compassion in the way we are – with ourselves and with others – in our daily lives.
This programme is for everyone – new or experienced.
