Day of Practice Saturday 15 December – ‘Back to Basics’ – led by Nick Carroll
The clarity, directness and simplicity of the Buddha’s insights are remarkable given the context of the world he lived in. They are as applicable today as when they were originally taught.
His insights gave rise to his core teachings of The Three Refuges, The Four Noble Truths and The Eightfold Noble Path, a framework of reference for an active inquiry into life as well a path of practice that leads from entrapment in the conditioned to the freedom of the Unconditioned.
The day will include silent sitting and walking practice in the morning, quiet time for oneself after the meal followed by an afternoon of shared reflections and Q&A on the theme. All are welcome.
Registration is from 9.30am in Retreat Centre Kitchen for a 9.45am orientation talk and a 10am start. The day finishes at 5pm. There will be a shared light lunch – please bring some food which doesn’t need preparation to share if you can. No booking required. No fee but donations towards the Retreat Centre running costs will be welcome.
