Event: Ham meditation group
|Title||Ham meditation group|
For a long time our modern life has been disconnected from the impact that we have on nature. Fortunately, more and more people are awaking to the fact that we are not separate from nature; in fact, we are very much part of nature and dependent on it.
This autumn, we will focus on The Buddha’s teaching that in life there is suffering but also that there is an end to suffering.
It can be anything from physical pain (toothache), emotional pain (worry, anxiety, anger). But it can also be the suffering that arises from issues like the carbon footprint and climate change, how the nature and wild life is suffering because to the impact humans have on it. And how we suffer from the effect of increase carbon emission and climate change. And how we suffer from the effect of increase carbon emission and climate change. And how we suffer from the effect of increase carbon emission and climate change. And how we suffer from the effect of increase carbon emission and climate change.

Meditation and Mindfulness is being awake
Being present with our bodies, breaths, feelings and thoughts and noticing what is happening in the present moment.
Sometimes even though we have the best aspirations to be kind and patient, we get overwhelmed our buttons get pushed we fall into old habits of reacting and unmindful comsumtions.
Then we pause and come back to our body and breath and back to the aspiration of doing no harm.
The meditation practice is inspired by Buddhist mindfulness, but people from all spiritual paths or no paths are welcome.
The group is run on a drop-in basis, no need to commit or book, just come when you like to practice in a group.
There is no need to have meditated before.
When: Every Mondays, doors open 7.30pm, starts 7.45, ends 9.15
