The green buddha - appreciative awareness in troubled times

Friday, 18 February 2022 to Friday, 25 February 2022 2022

We live, it seems, in increasingly troubled times. Yet if we fall prey to fear, hatred, blame and conflict, things only get worse. Somehow we need the resources to find our feet, rise up and meet the challenges we face with courage and confidence, with strength and dignity, with creativity and compassion, with wisdom and the harmonising speech that builds concord and co-operation.

Kindness, Compassion, Rejoicing and Serenity

Friday, 17 February 2023 to Friday, 24 February 2023 2023

In Buddhism, the four love meditations are known as the brahma vihāras or ‘sublime abidings’. These meditations cultivate kindness (mettā bhāvanā), compassion (karunā bhāvanā), appreciative joy (muditā bhāvanā) and serenity (upekkhā bhāvanā). In a way they are a meditative preparation for real life - our encounters with real human beings in the midst of their joys and sorrows.
