Insight Meditation: Caring for the Earth.

The workshop will be taught by Caroline Jones who started her meditation practice in 1989 and has been teaching since 2006 in Gaia House meditation center in the UK and abroad, including Finland. Here is Caroline’s description of the event:

“The Buddha’s teachings encourage us to live in ways that alleviate and end suffering, in our our heart and in our world. The first part of this workshop will focus on the cultivation of compassion and gratitude as key inner resources for the work of responding to climate change. The second part will offer ways of connecting with our vision for a life-sustaining future and clarifying our goals for action.  There will be guided meditations, individual reflection and conversation in pairs and small groups.”

The climate workshop will be held at Sampo-center on Saturday 16.11. from 10 to 14.  There will be a tea break with some fruits, please bring your own snack if you like. The teaching will be in English, in the small group and pair discussions it is possible to speak in Finnish and English.
