Thursday, 5th October, 8pm DST
 

Dear Friends, this Thursday 5th October 8:00 PM (Australian Eastern Daylight Saving time) we will begin this month's exploration of the next verse in the Discourse on Happiness,

“To be humble and polite in manner,
to be grateful and content with a simple life,
not missing the occasion to learn the Dharma —
this is the greatest happiness.”

All are welcome to join Charmaine, Robert and I as we offer a short sharing, a guided meditation, and dharma sharing groups.
The prompt for reflection is "What can get in the way of being inclusive in my life? How can I be more inclusive of situations, people and things as they are?"

This Saturday, Liz and Rose welcome you as we continue to listen to and explore the 9th verse from The Discourse on Happiness. In the large group sangha, we will enjoying opening to the wonderful wisdom of the collected community, focusing on the question: ‘What does it mean to be humble and polite toward others? How does your practice support you to act with humility’?

We will then finish with a guided meditation.

“To be humble and polite in manner,
to be grateful and content with a simple life,
not missing the occasion to learn the Dharma —
this is the greatest happiness.”

Total Relaxation

We humans have lost the wisdom of genuinely resting and relaxing (Thich Nhat Hanh). How long is it since you said thank you to your body for your life and your enjoyment of the small moments?

Dear Sangha, please join Daya and Debbie for our practice of deep relaxation. When we rest our bodies, our minds follow. Let's be wise. Let's stop together for a while and give gentle attention and thanks to the rhythms and sensations in our bodies.

Ensure you have something soft and supportive to lie on or somewhere you will be able to sit comfortably and that you will feel warm enough.
