Touching Nirvana: Concentration

24th August @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm BST

Touching Nirvana: Summer Dharma Drop-in

Week Four: concentration

“…these five virtues, together, are sufficient to bring forth all the qualities of a Buddha” [Siksasamuccaya]

Whether your goal is Enlightenment, becoming happier or even just to make it through the week without feeling so stressed, it can be hard to know where to start.

Join us for this summer drop-in series as we explore the five spiritual powers; a series of simple but powerful qualities which, according to the Buddhist tradition, when cultivated in balance with their companions, form the path to Enlightenment.

Each week we’ll be focussing on a different spiritual power; faith, energy, mindfulness, concentration and wisdom. The fourth week of the series focusses on concentration, particularly through the practice of meditation. Through discussion, reflection and meditation, we’ll be developing an understanding of concentration and how cultivating this kind of absorption can kickstart change and transformation in our lives right now – wherever you might be on the path.

Newcomers welcome. Feel free to come to all these sessions or just as many as you like. There’s no need to book, just drop in!

Face coverings are also now discretionary. The wearing of face coverings at this event will therefore be optional but still welcomed if you would prefer to do so.
