Buddhist Women’s Network Winter Day of Practice for Lay Women

Looking Forward… Looking Back… Sitting Still
Led by Jenna Ghouse and Randula Haththotuwa

It is the turning of the year. A time we traditionally look back on events of the past. A time we look forward to what the future might hold. A time to perhaps pause and allow for some stillness, silence and space to reflect. We can reflect on our mindfulness and meditation practice of the year gone by, and we can set our aspirations for the year ahead. Looking back and looking forward, we reflect in the spacious awareness that is now. And we watch what arises…

The day will include periods of sitting and walking meditation, reflections and group sharing on the theme. Meet in the Retreat Centre Kitchen from 9.30 am for a 10.00 am start. Please bring already prepared vegetarian food for a shared lunch. The event finishes at 4.30 pm. No booking is required and no fee though donations to the Retreat Centre would be appreciated. Beginners and those new to this tradition are welcome.
