In May, we completed our theme of The Three fold Way - ethics, meditation and wisdom, looking at the Three Lakshanas, or characteristics of our lives - impermanence, unsatisfactoriness, and lacking a separate and fixed self. We looked at how these ‘negative’ experiences can be doorways to freedom, liberating. June was Buddhist Action Month, and we shared stories of how we put compassion into action in our lives.
We’ll be following that up with a multi-cultural story telling evening in October, sharing stories of kindness.
In July we welcomed Prakashadhi (ex Ros) back to Llangollen.
August is holiday time and many people are away but we are continuing to meet for simple meditation evenings.
Our new programme starts in September - we’ll be looking at the Bodhisattva path - the qualities of one who lives to benefit all living beings.
Shrewsbury sangha are holding a Street meditation on September 1st on Pride Hill Shrewsbury 12-2pm. Just go along if you’d like to witness to the power of mindfulness and metta!
