ALBA Day of Practice

Led by Martin Evans What is Buddhist practice?  It is turning against the stream of greed, hate and delusion. Turning against the stream means letting go. When we let our greed, hate or delusion go, it ‘flows downstream’ and peace naturally fills the space left behind.  We don’t need to try to become peaceful, it comes to us naturally like a gift when we let go.  But it is hard to resist the pull of the world.  To hold firm against the stream we need support.  So where could that come from?  What support does Buddhist practice  have to offer?      Registration is from 9.30am in the Retreat Centre Kitchen.  There will be a short orientation talk at 9.45am and then we gather in the Retreat Centre Shrine Room at 10am for meditation, some of which will be guided. Bring warm outdoor clothing and suitable footwear for walking meditation.  In the afternoon there will be a talk on the theme followed by questions and answers and discussion.  Please bring some vegetarian food to share if you can.  No booking required. All are welcome. ...
