LIVING IN THE MOMENT: MINDFULNESS OF IMPERMANENCE
Do you like the idea of living in the moment? How can we actually live in the moment, in the present, in the here and the now? And do we really want to? Or do we try to distract ourselves from this moment because it is not very comfortable? In this age of distraction, depression, and worry there seems to be both great interest in and need for Buddha’s advice on how to actually be present and in the moment in a truly satisfying and meaningful way. In this four-week course we will explore teachings and meditations on patient acceptance, mindfulness and impermanence, gaining experience of spiritual insights that give rise to peace, happiness, and fulfillment for both ourselves and others.
