Crucible of Communication

Crucible of Communication

These ‘in person’ events in the Centre facilitated by Bhadra and Dharmamrta can be seen as a facilitated meditation practice focusing on 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 body sensations as they appear, especially how they affect our relation to ourselves and others. 

We start by laying out the Dharma framework 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. 

To attend you need to have completed the introductory meditation and Buddhism course at the Centre and be able to attend both days in full.

This is what others have said about their experience:

“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.” Ab
