Location:
17 Lower Redland Road, Redland
According to Buddhist teachings, we suffer because we think we have a real, solid self. This automatically implies ‘other”, which creates a sense of split from our world. In this talk we will explore how this sense of self arises from moment to moment

With this split we imprison ourselves
in this seemingly real elaborate structure of ego. We will discuss
how, through meditation, we can begin to infiltrate this structure
and allow a sense of space and humour to enter our lives. We can
relax and slow down, starting to see through the elaborate games
we continually play.
Teacher: Sue Blackwell, student of Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche
