Imagine a life with no fears, a spiritual life with great inner strength and confidence. With Buddha’s teachings on wisdom you are offered the opportunity to see things the way they really are, to dissolve away hallucinations of suffering and to develop a truly peaceful and happy mind. Just remembering emptiness makes us increasingly confident and stable in the face of obstacles and adversities.
The Heart Sutra is a much loved teaching given by Buddha 2600 years ago which is often recited as a special way of contemplating emptiness and dispelling obstacles. This course is a very precious and unique opportunity to receive an introduction to the hidden meaning in the heart sutra. Although quite short it contains many liberating insights that enable us to realize the true nature of reality and the true nature of our self.
During the day there will be a series of teachings and guided meditations as well as time to ask questions. The course is best suited to those with some experience of meditation or prior interest in Buddhist meditation but it is not a prerequisite. The most important thing is to come with an open mind and the willingness to find out the truth for yourself!
