In this class, we come home to ourselves to access our strength, wisdom, courage and joy, so needed for us to meet these difficult times with freedom and clarity. We explore ways to stay engaged without burning out and how we can pause regularly to make sure our action is coming from a place of self-reflection and insight.

    Daily Meditation Recordings, with Zohar Lavie – Week of May 30, 2022

    This week’s theme is: Bringing the Practice to Life. The Buddha’s teachings emphasise the whole of our lives as a rich ground for exploration and growth.  Through meditation, we cultivate skills and ways of relating that can be applied beyond formal meditation. This week we will explore bringing the practice to different areas and aspects of our lives. We will open to taste how this enlivens and rejuvenates our practice, and how it can nurture wellbeing for others and ourselves.
