Post-mitra study for women
Living and Practising in a Time of Pandemic.
How does the Buddha’s wisdom and compassion manifest around the big themes of disease, illness and death? The early Buddhist discourses offer many examples of guidance from the Buddha and his disciples, including practical advice and ‘living by example’ as well as dharma teachings and meditations to cultivate wisdom/freedom of heart.
We will study selected chapters of Analayo’s Mindfully Facing Disease and Death to connect with the historical Buddha and some of his disciples around the themes of disease and pain, and we shall explore the relevance of the teachings for our own dharma practice. Throughout the emphasis is on the importance of compassion, for ourselves and others.
We would ask you to commit to all four sessions, and give yourself plenty of time to study, reflect and meditate on each session’s materials (usually about eight pages).
Sessions will be held via Zoom. An invitation will be sent to those who book.
Maximum 10 people.
Held fortnightly on 24 May, 7 June, 21 June, 5 July from 10:00 to 12:00.
For women who have finished mitra study.
