Another third Tuesday comes around and we will be sitting, walking and sitting – the evening will be silent. No discussion is planned, so no reading, unless you want to study this month’s hindrance; Sloth & Torpor.

The schedule is:

6:00 – 6:30 sitting
6:30 – 7:00 walking
7:00 – 7:30 sitting

We meet at BIBS – location in the sidebar.

Tuesday, June 12th

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.
 
We meet at BIBS and the schedule is:
6:00 – 6:30 sitting
6:30 – 7:15 discussion
7:15 – 7:30 sitting

You are welcome to come for all or part of the evening. Please tread softly when entering during a sitting period…

Tuesday, June 5th

We will be discussing a talk about Receptive Awareness by Andrea Fella that you can find at these links: download or stream – this is the talk that was sent out for the discussion that had to be cancelled last month.

 
The hindrance of the month for June is ill will so please pay attention to how that enters your life, if it does…

Resentment is like taking poison and hoping it’ll kill someone else.

6:00 – 6:30 sitting
6:30 – 7:15 discussion
7:15 – 7:30 sitting
