awareness to wisdom

Friday, 28 February 2020 to Friday, 6 March 2020 2020

What is the relationship between mindfulness and wisdom?  How can a simple practice of on-going awareness help us know the nature of reality? Using the Buddha's words from the Satipatthana Sutta we will cultivate awareness that is receptive and reflexive. With continuity of practice the quality of our mind is transformed and a deeper understanding of the way things are is naturally revealed.
