Deepening into Dharma Practice
with David Midgley
This is a one year, practice based, intermediate level course and is especially suitable for those who have been practising the Buddhist path for some time but want to develop their actual practice of this path to a deeper level. Each term will focus primarily on one of the three main aspects of Buddhist practice – the first term will centre on developing mindful awareness and concentration, the second term on compassion and renunciation, and the third on meditative insight. The emphasis throughout will be on meditation practice rather than just intellectual understanding.
We will study three core texts, one each term:
Nyanaponika Thera (2014, 2nd edition) The Heart of Buddhist Meditation: The Buddha’s Way of Mindfulness, Weiser Books.
The First Dalai Lama (1993) Training the Mind in the Great Way (translated by Glenn Mullin), Snow Lion Publications
HH Dalai Lama & Alexander Berzin (1997) The Gelug/Kagyu Tradition of Mahamudra, Snow Lion Publications
