Talks on the Ten Perfections
These talks are a series of mindfulness meditation sessions, looking at particular qualities or frames of mind that help us to be peaceful and gain a sense of balance in our lives. These are all single, stand-alone sessions so you are free to come to as many or as few of them as you wish. They do not form a course as such, but will help to deepen your meditation practice and provide an interesting overview of some of the aspects of Buddhist psychology.
No experience is necessary.
These mindfulness sessions are ideal if any of the following apply:
- You are curious about how to lead a life of ease and kindness
- Have little, no or some meditation experience
- Want to discover the benefits of meditation in a friendly, informal environment
- Are interested in psychology or human behaviour
There will be a talk on a different subject each time, plus a guided meditation, time for tea and biscuits as well as the opportunity for thoughts, reflections and questions. These talks are hosted by principal teacher, Jennie Lichfield.
There are ten qualities of the heart and mind that, in Buddhist terms, are said to be perfect. In other words, if we could get those right we’ll really be on the right track for living our lives fully, with a happy heart and contributing wisely to the communities we live in.
