La Cite universitaire francophone University of Regina Main Campus (Room 216, Language Institute Building, east of the Library Building)
By immersing ourselves in silent sitting and walking meditation, supported by the profundity of the Buddha's teaching, we will infuse our body, heart and mind with present-moment embodied awareness. We will explore together a spontaneous, wise and open-hearted relationship with the moment-to-moment changing flow of life's experience. We will investigate the Buddha's teaching on the eight worldly winds to understand how we get entangled in conditions and lose our sense of freedom. Since awareness practice can also reveal layers of physical and emotional tension and pain, as we open to the truth of our experience, we learn to cultivate a capacity for compassionately holding our suffering and transforming it into a deep sense of well-being.
Both new and experienced meditators are invited to participate in this deep immersion into awakening True Being.
All are welcome.
