 MEDITATION FOR THE MODERN WORLD

Courses on Mindfulness for Daily Life, with emphasis on Meditation from a Buddhist perspective.

The basic practice of mindfulness was taught by the Buddha 2,500 years ago. He was very clear that without mindfulness there is no liberation.

“This is the only way, for the purification of beings, … for the destruction of suffering … for the attainment of Nibbana, is the four foundations of mindfulness.” 

Fortnightly Saturday mornings in 2017 

Dyana-contemplation-4266-500pxMindfulness is the most powerful tool we have for transformation. 

In these courses we will focus on the four foundations of mindfulness: 

  • awareness of the body
  • awareness of feelings and emotions
  • awareness of mental contents and thoughts
  • awareness of phenomena, the patterns of life 

We will use movement, meditation, creative visualisation and discussion to dive deeply into the experience of being alive and fully engaged in our present experience.  

Using powerful yet gentle movement exercises from the Tibetan Yoga tradition, we cultivate an awareness which naturally opens our bodies and enriches our minds. 

Followed by discussion into core Buddhist principles, and meditation practices to give a deeper insight into how our mind/body operates. Understanding and seeing clearly enable us to make changes that bring us greater ease and happiness. 

meditationWe will be using different kinds of meditations and practices to train ourselves to be present to the many conflicting and compelling emotions, stories, and experiences that distress and distract us in daily life. You will develop your ability to rest in a calm spacious presence, meeting whatever arises with loving kindness and interest. 

The series of classes has a practical focus.  

  • supporting the cultivation of awareness, concentration and total acceptance of the present moment.
  • working with the body and mind to bring a full, subtle engagement with what is.
  • increase our sense of connectedness with and responsibility to all of life. 

Students will look at incorporating the Buddhist seven factors of enlightenment into their practice and daily life.

Dyana Wells - Yoga Teacher and Novelist

Dyana Wells has been studying and sharing Buddhist teachings and practice for over 25 years.

She shares meditations and wisdom teachings that support our journeying to a deeper understanding of who we are. She shares traditional practices that enable us to engage life with more passion and freedom. She encourages us to live the richness of the moment with complete dispassion.  

Dyana explains: “Meditation is a way people have always quietened the minds to find their way to a deeper richer level of experience and wellbeing.

“The wellspring of life and truth lies within – as all the scriptures say it is closer to us than our hands and feet. Many of us have forgotten how to find our way there, we have forgotten the fullness of our natural state.”

Dyana offers clear teaching and guidance, which is practical, relevant and accessible. She offers a wealth of tools and techniques from her own training and study which are designed to suit every individual and situation. 

Dyana has spent her life exploring deeply, both inner and outer worlds.

She had been an avid explorer all her life, in love with life, roaming mountain tops, tussock country, forests hung heavy with snow, wilderlands with vast river valleys rolling and snaking through boulders.

She has sailed the craggy, sandy treacherous coastline of New Zealand, and journeyed on the wings of her sail over the tumultuous ocean into the pacific.

Dyana has cycled bumpy backbones of our moody planet, determined to experience life in all her seasons. Her love of life is inexhaustible, and she brings this exuberance for life into her teaching and novels.
