Meditation Smorgasboard

One challenge of meditating daily is that it can start to feel stale if you only practice one technique over and over again. At One Mindful Breath we're committed to supporting each other's meditation practice, so on Wednesday 16 October we'll be exploring meditation techniques the many of us haven't tried before. Over the last 2400 years a huge number of different techniques have developed so we'll have a smorgasbord of options to try. Whether you're a beginner or an experienced meditator, you'll find something to challenge you!

Putting the ‘culture’ back in ‘culture of awakening’

Following a group meditation, all participants will have an (optional) opportunity to discuss and reflect on a book, film or TV programme you have selected from a mindfulness or dharma perspective. It could be a book about meditation, it could be the latest season of Game of Thrones. The challenge is to think about how it connects with your mediation or ethical practice.

In the Japanese Zen tradition there is a saying: ‘to catch a tiger’s cub, you must first enter the tiger’s cave.’ During this daylong workshop, Sydney secular insight meditation teacher Winton Higgins will locate meditation practice within the wider transcultural project to ‘know thyself’ – of cultivating the inner life, however scary it might seem.
