Open Path Schedule

Explorations in Movement: Now is the place to practice
Sundays: 10am - 12.00pm - Fortnightly.

The experience of calm grounded centredness and alive responsiveness that characterise a well-developed dharma practice are for sharing with others, out in the world. And, these qualities are founded in an embodied knowing readily accessible to everyday awareness in any situation cultivated through this gentle movement practice (see more detailed outline in Exploring the Teaching below).
Ongoing: September 26, October 10 & 24, November 7 & 21, Dec 5.


 

Exploring the Teaching: Now is the place to practice

Frequently, meditation and dharma practices are understood as formal spiritual exercises that are undertaken in a quiet, separate space outside the ordinary events of everyday life. However, the experience of calm grounded centredness and alive responsiveness that characterise a well-developed dharma practice are for sharing with others, out in the world. And, these qualities are founded in an embodied knowing readily accessible to everyday awareness in any situation. During this series, we will explore practices, teachings and trainings that inspire everyday re-membering and expression of our finer qualities and explore both the delights and challenges of increasingly pausing, connecting and sharing these through everyday experience.

The format of this series of teaching sessions will alternate weekly with an emphasis on nudging awareness of qualities of wholesome mind through:

  • Explorations in Movement: gentle body movement (commencing Sunday September 26);
  • Exploring the Teaching: classical and contemporary expressions of the Dharma accompanied by gentle movement practice, formal sitting practice, discussion and reflection (from Sunday October 3rd).

While there will always be people with greater and lesser experience of dharma practice in each session, people with minimal experience are very welcome and will be assisted to develop their own practice.

October 3, 17 & 31, November 14 & 28, December 12.
