'Flies, and Buddhas'

Day for all Sangha women at Norwich Buddhist Centre

Sun 5 August
10am - 4pm

‘Where there are humans
you'll find flies,
and Buddhas.’
Issa


A day to share what's alive for us in our practice. In the morning we will be sharing what the 'flies' are in our practice - what it is that gives our practice its edge.. In the afternoon, we will talk about our current inspirations, our 'Buddhas'...music, pictures, poems, paintings, films... so do bring anything you would like to share (you don't have to limit yourself to things which have explicitly Dharmic content). There will also be meditation and a short talk by Satyagita.

As it's summer, we will be breaking with tradition and bringing our own individual picnic lunches which, weather permitting, we can eat together in the cathedral Close. Please also bring something to sit on (fold-up chair or rug). If it's cold or rainy, we can spread our rugs on the floor of the Buddhist centre! Do consider coming. It's a delightful way to spend a summer's day together.

With Satyagita, Shraddhadhi and Sinhadakini

The Wisdom of Relaxation – a Silent Retreat Day

Sun 2 Sep
10am - 4pm

Most of us have a degree of tension and anxiety in our lives. It’s not easy to engage with meditation and Buddhist practice when our body and mind are tense and over-stimulated. Relaxation, or letting go, is something we can learn to do. This silent retreat day will focus on entering the spaciousness of mind and body at ease. The day will include guided meditation, relaxing into sound, and plenty of silence. A silent day retreat with meditation, reflection, relaxation and exploration of the open dimension of mind.
