This week @ Beaches Sangha

Hi all.

We've had a bit of a last minute program change, (not that I believe anyone actually looks at the program??) and this week Sylvie is going to run a session called Mindful Seeing.

With our busy lives, and when under stress, we often cannot seethings as they are and our perception can lose its depth and even blind us from what is right before our eyes. To a certain extent, this is normal and part of our evolution. As Rick Hanson, neuropsychologist and author of the Buddha's Brain, says: "Before we can focus on what we'll have for lunch, we have to make sure that we're not going to be someone else's lunch". The good news is that our meditation practice can help us broaden our vision so we can see more deeply what surrounds us. 

This week, Sylvie will invite you to participate in a short research experiment followed by a "mindful seeing" exercise. So, come and see for yourself what we mean by mindful vision.

Also, for those interested, there is a Buddhism & Psychotherapy conference on in Sydney the weekend after next. Click here for more details.

I hope you can  make it on Thursday night.
