Tonight, One Mindful Breath will be running the eighth of an eight part secular dharma study course titled What is this? and it focuses on two talks – The four great vows and Instruction: waiting and listening – given by Stephen Batchelor at Gaia House, Devon, on 14 and 15 April 2016.
We won’t be listening to the talk on the night, so we ask that you listen to it before you come along, and recommend that you take notes as you listen. During each session, a facilitator will put questions to the group of participants; these questions will be found on this page in due course.
Each part of the study course will take place during the One Mindful Breath session on the fourth Wednesday of the month and the evenings will start with a 30-minute meditation.
