We are very happy to invite you to a series of talks with Diamond Way teacher Dafydd Morriss from London. Dafydd will share his in-depth knowledge with us, giving two talks “Meditation” and “The Four Basic Thoughts”. Details of the program are shown below:
The Four Basic Thoughts
Friday 7 June, 3.00pm
Every Diamond Way Buddhist meditation starts with four essential statements that we use to motivate and remind ourselves why it is so important to practise meditation and to learn more about Buddhism. This talk will introduce and explain these four topics and will end with a guided meditation.
Saturday 8 June, 3.00pm
The Buddha taught many methods for skilfully working with mind. Among these, meditation techniques are very important and have several aims: they free us from disturbing emotions; help us to realise the dreamlike nature of our experience while strengthening our compassionate ability to help others to do the same; and allow us to recognise the timeless and perfect potential of mind. This talks will give an overview of the types of Buddhist meditation, focussing in particular on how these methods can be used in our daily lives, and will include a guided meditation.
