Message from the team ahead of Thursday 10/11/22:

Join us for another gathering of the Canterbury Sangha on Thursday the 10th at 19:15
We will be, once again, having an evening of Buddhist Meditation, discussion and tea, followed by an optional walk after dark in the woods to ground our practice. 
Following from last month's talk from Kit about Positive Emotion and how his Ceramics practice reflects and relates to his Buddhist practice. This month we will be looking at the next stage of the Triratna system of practice, Spiritual Death. Kit and Prajnasisya will be in discussion about what this means in a Buddhist context through the lens of Pottery and Art. 
What is it like when things go awry in our lives? What is it like when a pot comes out the Kiln cracked? How can we develop kindness to these sensations and, more importantly, where do these experiences lead us? Kit and Prajnasisya will be drawing on their experiences both at the wheel and on the cushion to draw out some of the core elements of what Spiritual death means.
All are welcome - event run by donation.

Programme

Thursday 8 December: Spiritual Rebirth

Each month until the new year we will be having talks and meditations on the Triratna system of practice. Hosted by Prajnasisya and Kit the talks will cover:
-     Integration // 11th Sept
-     Positive Emotion // 13th Oct
-     Spiritual Death // 10th Nov
-     Spiritual Rebirth // 8th Dec
We will be looking at what these concepts mean in a Buddhist context and how they can be used in our day to day lives. To do this, each topic will be framed in the context of potter. Both Prajnasisya and Kit are potters and will be bringing their practice forward to highlight the importance and beauty of a spiritual life. Join us on the second Thursday of each month, tea and biscuits provided!
Each session will be followed by an optional silent walk in the woods after dark with a poetry reading to ground our practice in the natural world.
All are welcome – by donation
