Spiritual Receptivity & the realm of Amitabha

3 July: Introducing Receptivity and Amitabha’s Realm with Naravira

Receptivity corresponds in practice to Just Sitting and Simply Being. It emphasises the quality of awareness that is inherent within our experience. It is an opening to full presence of body sense and awareness. It moves us in the direction of opening to our true nature beyond mental fabrications, to being in undivided awareness – conceptually unknowable and ungraspable.
This series in the Mandala of Practice will explore the ideas and practice of receptivity through a number of short talks and introductions, as well as led meditations. Although the idea of Just sitting might sound simple, there can be many ways of unfolding it. We will be exploring some of these ways by looking directly at the nature of our awareness and how to simply BE without doing. We will look at ways the thinking mind can be ‘seen’ in order to not be constantly under its sway and we will question our assumptions about what is happening in our direct experience.
