We have a bonus Tuesday night this month.
 
For our consideration…the next talk in Joseph Goldstein’s exploration of the Satipatthana Sutta. We listened to his introduction last month. Here is a link to the entire series.
 
I love this teaching as it incorporates so many threads of practice and is so accessible and personal.
Enjoy!
 
The hindrance of the month for June is sloth & torpor so please pay attention to how that enters your life, if it does…

For our discussion next week we will be listening to a talk by Andrea Fella – Noticing The Relationship to Experience that you can find at these links: download or stream – in which Andrea talks about how mindfulness can lead to change and freedom. This despite her initial ‘What the heck!’ reaction to being told that when she was angry she should just notice the anger…

She also discusses working with the long-standing beliefs we have about ourselves, and becoming aware of the many flavours of OKness.

 
Following on from last week’s topic, you can find a guided meditation (20 minutes) on Receptive Awareness at the following links: download or stream.
