Online Day of Practice – 24 July 2021

Are you sure?

Led by Martin Evans

Are you sure? is a question we hold up as a mirror to the mind – to whatever comes up.   We are not looking for an answer to the big questions of life – nor are we trying to cultivate doubt or confusion about the day to day decisions we have to take in life – it is a question we use to hold up as a mirror to the mind.   It is a way of disentangling our conditioned ways of thinking, by turning to face the mind head on – and not turning away.  Instead of tightening the knots by believing in the stories the mind creates, the knots are loosened and ultimately shake out completely, and the mind becomes at ease, through understanding.

Structure to the day

The day will start with an optional early morning sitting meditation. You can start joining us at 6am and the morning puja and meditation will be from 6.30-7.30am

Then we will have a break for breakfast and restart the main programme for the day at 9.25am which will start with a short orientation talk at 9.35 am.  The day finishes at 4.30pm. 

The day includes  periods of guided and silent meditation practice with a break around midday, followed by reflections on the theme and Q & A.
