Online Day of Practice – 11 December 2021

Seeking a shore

Led by Randula Haththotuwa

It is never the same
Is it ever the same?
Is there ever a same
 in that we name?

This world, alas..
is it but not
a sea of names
that we just claim?

A changing sea
a shifting tide
forever more
seeking a shore

Health considerations

Please note that our events are not intended as a treatment for mental health conditions. Meditation and periods of silence can be experienced by some as quite challenging. If you have any concerns that you might be detrimentally affected by participating in one of our day events or retreats, please discuss your concerns with a relevant mental health professional before registering.

Should you experience any difficulties whilst participating in one of our events and require support, please contact a relevant mental health professional as we are not able to offer support through a crisis online.
