      Theme

      In the earliest teachings found in the Buddhist tradition, mindfulness is never presented as a stand-alone quality nor as an end in itself.  Instead, mindfulness is presented as a quality and capacity in human consciousness, that is cultivated and developed simultaneously with a number of other qualities.  A significant part of this extended family are kindness, compassion, joyfulness and equanimity - qualities that can equally be cultivated and developed. Together they form a complete path of awakening in which greed, hatred and confusion can come to an end. Thus, allowing us to thrive, flourish and deepen as human beings - responsive to the world within us and the world around us.  

      During this online course we will reflect on some of the nuances of mindfulness, the ways that it functions to bring distress to an end, and how it interfaces with the qualities of the heart that liberate. Some of the teaching material will draw on Christina’s recent book, written with Willem Kukyen, Mindfulness: Ancient Wisdom Meets Modern Psychology.

      There will be periods of teaching, peer discussion, meditation practice and time for questions and reflection.  

      It is expected that participants will attend the entire weekend.

      This event is organised in cooperation with European Center for Mindfulness in Freiburg.
