At last! Another opportunity to take part in the practice of the Crucible of Communication. This ‘in person’ event in the Centre can be seen as a facilitated meditation practice attending to both internal and external experience. Just like meditation, it is an opportunity to gain some insight into the shape and texture of our thoughts and habits as they appear, especially how they affect how we relate to ourselves and others.
We start by laying out some reference points or Dharma maps with which to orientate ourselves. Then, after some warm-up exercises, helping us come into relationship with each, we sit in the facilitated circle and become sensitive to what arises within and amongst us, choosing for ourselves what to share and what to simply hold in awareness; a simple and sometimes profound communication practice that allows us all to work at our own pace.
With Bhadra and Dharmamrta.
You need to have completed the introductory course and be able to attend both days to book onto this event.
“A remarkable space – to explore absolutely live the intricacies and conditioning we bring to communication, in the moment of that communication. The sessions are held in a Dharmic context and with Sangha, both of which feel important to me. Bhadra brings a depth of commitment, experience and a raw honesty to this model of group process that is very inspiring.” A.B.
Restarting on 9th October | NEW TIME! 2-5 pm | in person only event
Suitable for those with 3+ years of practice experience within Triratna.
Another immersion in the spiritual faculty of Prajna (wisdom or insight), this time explored particularly through walking meditation. The freedom of Shunyata, or Ungraspability, can be touched in any moment of experience. We’ll be looking deeply at the experience of walking, to see its open, ungraspable nature.
