Next Session

07 March - The Broad Band of Awareness - Vajradevi

In this 2-hour session we’ll be reviving a precious teaching that helps us work with our minds. The Broad Band of Awareness has not had much of an outing since its heyday at Vajraloka retreat centre in the nineties.

The session will have some input around what the BBA is, and what helps us stay within the ‘band’ more of the time. Exploring factors such as ‘choice’ (of location, posture, and practice) and ‘internal gauges’ (of body sensations, images and thoughts, and emotions) to guide us gently into deep but safe waters of practice.

When we are at ease within ourselves interest and engagement with our experience follows naturally. The easier it then becomes to simply be aware and find joy in the process.

Future Dates for Rivendell Sunday Sessions:

21 March - Navigating Change with Bravery and Openness with Vidyamala

As we come out of lockdown and hear talk of life gradually 'returning to normal', many of us may be feeling a mixture of emotions. These might range from relief and happiness through to fear and anxiety. Perhaps we don't want to go back to the old normal and would rather craft a new normal for ourselves? What would that look like and how can we use this time as an opportunity to make lasting and creative changes in our lives?

11 April - ''All You Need is Love.....Really?'' with Balajit

As humans we are wired when stressed to easily contract and regress
into reptilian states of fight, fight and freeze. As humans we are
also wired to seek connection, aliveness and to live with a liberated
heart.  What does it mean to practice Buddhism with these primal
conflicting forces? What helps us to cultivate resilience and navigate life
many challenges, whilst staying connected and open hearted?
