Event Description: The weekend will be an opportunity to delve deeply into what it means to be a mortal human being and how we can make best use of this opportunity. We will use some Buddhist ceremonies and meditation practices, including walking meditation. We will be considering how these practices can be integrated into our daily lives. This will include finding skilful responses to stress with all its causes and in all its manifestations in order that the tangible qualities of peace and joy may be brought forth for the benefit of all.
