Times of difficulty can also be times for insight and realisation. As we face continued uncertainty in our outer environment, the Plum Village practice of the Five Remembrances can support us to find inner joy, ease and insights. During the course we have the opportunity to regularly use the foundational practice of the Five Remembrances and to explore the teachings on impermanence and the insights that are associated with it.
We can open our hearts to the healing energy of the present moment and renew ourselves. Then, we in turn can offer joy, ease and equanimity to the world.
Dharma Teachers Teri West and Vari McLuskie are offering a Course of four weekly online sessions (once a week for 4 weeks) that offer us a chance to explore the theme of Impermanence and to use the Five Remembrances to deepen our insights into this important teaching. Each week will build on the one before so we encourage you to attend all four sessions if possible. Teri and Vari will be supported by experienced Order member Anthony Leete.
