Looking Deeply is a 6-week follow on course from Be Calm Be Happy in which we build on the learning from this foundation, refreshing and extending our own practice in the Plum Village tradition.
The benefits of Looking Deeply are to ground ourselves more fully in Thay’s teachings, giving deep, strong roots to our peace and contentment. We can do this most beneficially as a Sangha, a group of people coming together to practise and support one another on the journey.
Looking Deeply develops the themes and learnings from Be Calm Be Happy and takes us deeper into Thay’s teachings, exploring topics of helping us to become more aware of our ’territory’, which is – body, feelings, mind, and consciousness. Together we will discover how to develop our mindfulness further into our experiences and life.
In each session we will
We will recommend meditations from the Plum Village App for you to use during the week.
Our expectation for this course is either that you have already attended a Be Calm Be Happy course or that you have considerable experience of practising in the Plum Village tradition with a Sangha, and have participated in other Plum Village UK retreats, courses, or events. It is suitable for those of all faiths and none. Our course participants come from a wide range of backgrounds.
Please note, this course is not suitable for beginners, and we recommend Be Calm Be Happy if you are looking for an introduction to the Plum Village practises, or a means of re-establishing a regular practice.
This course is led by two experienced practitioners in the Plum Village Tradition, Dharma teacher Vari McLuskie and Be Calm Be Happy Course Co-ordinator Lauri Bower.
