For those of you who can’t make the course live, recordings will be available soon after the event for all participants.
We will be exploring Mindfulness in Plain English by Bhante Gunaratana, one of Henry’s go-to recommendations for those seeking guidance in mindfulness practice. Gunaratana takes a gentle and deep dive into mindfulness-based meditation, providing a down-to-earth and practical guide, rooted deeply in Vipassana and Buddhist teachings.
This program guides participants into a deep exploration of the text through self-reflection/writing prompts, peer learning, and teachings from Valerie Forstman, Mountain Cloud Zen Center’s Guiding Teacher.
Participants will take the month of April to read the book, and will have the opportunity to dialogue with one another about their learning through the Community Forum, where we will post a series of writing, self-reflection, and practice prompts to coincide with each chapter of the book.
During the 2-Hour April 24th event, Valerie Forstman will illuminate key themes from the text, and engage participants in meditation practice, group discussion, and a question and answer session.
All are invited to this event, not just Original Love participants. This classic and accessible mindfulness text is an ideal introduction and support for those new to meditation.
