Practising Buddhism, Minute By Minute

Public talk with Don Handrick – all welcome.

Tuesday 23 October, 18.30-20:00

The practice of Buddhism doesn’t just consist of sitting in quiet meditation or reciting various prayers and rituals but also entails working with our minds throughout the many moments of our lives.
In this public talk, experienced Buddhist teacher Don Handrick will discuss how to meaningfully make the most out of the hours of the day, from waking until sleep. We will be investigating how to skillfully integrate what we study and practise on the meditation cushion into our daily lives to transform even the most mundane tasks into powerful actions and causes to benefit both ourselves and others.
