“No Mud, No Lotus” – Meditation and Supper Evening
Meditation and Supper Evening – No Mud, No Lotus
with Lucinda Pimlott
One of the fundamental teachings of the Buddha is that the secret to happiness is to acknowledge and transform suffering, rather than to run away from it. And yet, we seem to have a multitude of tactics for avoiding feelings which we experience as uncomfortable. The Pali word for suffering, ‘dukka’, can also be translated as ‘that which is hard to bear’ – just by acknowledging this, we are taking a step on the path which towards peace and happiness. In this session, we will explore how to recognise our suffering; how to build the strength and courage to be with the parts of ourselves we find difficult or painful and how to regain our peace of mind.
The evening will include a dharma talk, guided meditation in the style of Thich Nhat Hanh, tea and discussion and a light supper.Lucinda was initiated into the practice of Vipassana meditation 16 years ago at the Dhamma Dipa Centre with Goenkaji. Since then, she has had the good fortune of practising under the auspices of Thich Nath Hanh and with Insight Meditation Teachers at Gaia House in Devon.
