WEDNESDAY EVENING SITTING GROUP
7:00 – 8:30 pm every Wednesday evening, at St. Mary’s Church, Fulford, opposite the Fulford Hall, where will be be meeting through the month of October. As of November 7, and throughout the winter 6 months, we will meet once more at our regular location, The Gatehouse, Stowel Lake Farm, 190 Reynolds Road.
Come and meditate together, listen to and consider what it is to be fully human, to live with greater reverence, wonder and freedom, and to contribute the best of ourselves to our world, our people, ourselves. Everyone is welcome.
This year as well as Heather leading the group, we will have a few more senior students facilitating some of the Wednesday evenings.
Heather will offer a series of teachings on the ‘Paramis’ or the ten Perfections, from August through October. We will explore the relevance and value of such a focus for our practice and how we actually live.
SOCIAL EVENING: Every couple of months, rather than a dharma discussion, we meet and socialise before a period of meditation. Sangha or gathering of spiritual friends is a vital support to our meditation practice, and getting to know each other is an essential part of this support group. This Wednesday evening, October 3, bring some finger food (teas are provided), and get to know your follow meditators a little better. Same time as usual – 7:00 pm.
Thursday September 13 – October 4, 7:00 – 9:00 pm and Sunday October 7, 10:00 am – 3:00 pm.
There will be both theory and short practice sessions, and will serve as a basis for those newer to meditation, as well as provide a refresher for anyone who would like to re-inspire your spiritual life.
These will be at Star of the Sea, St. Mary’s Church, Fulford (where our Wednesday evening meditation group meets).
