This week @ sangha - sutta study + a virtual course with Rick Hanson

Hi all. This note might arrive a day late - I was going to write it last night but I would have had to fish my computer out from the cupboard under our bed in the van (we are doing our road trip to Cairns). That would have required me to turf our cattle dog off the bed, and he was just looking too comfy! Here's the view that greeted us through our van door this morning.

This week @ sangha
This week at sangha we have our monthly sutta study session with Winton Higgins. It's been fantastic how many people have been braving the cold over the past few weeks to support their practice and sangha. I really hope you'll all continue to do so this week with Winton making the trek out to walk us through the next chapter of Satipatthana Sutta. As always, it's best if you can read this month's chapter before the session (Chapter VI) but if you can't, don't let that deter you, Winton is great at placing each chapter in context and giving an overview of the key points.

A year long on-line course in wellbeing
I also want to let you know about a year long online course with one of our favourite authors/teachers/neuro-psychologists, Rick Hanson (of Buddha's Brain fame). It's an experiential, yearlong Foundations program designed to hardwire more happiness, resilience, self-worth, love, and peace into your brain and your life. The 'foundations' are 12 pillars of Well-Being: Self-Caring, Mindfulness, Learning, Vitality, Gratitude, Confidence, Calm, Motivation, Intimacy, Courage, Aspiration, and Service. It's a combintion of videos, experiential activities, slides/written material and a community forum. For more info and to register, click here.
