From Head To Heart – Finding the One Self within
May 30, 2014 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm$25
At the heart of the mystical and contemplative traditions is the teaching that there is only one thing and we are all it. To “get one’s head around” this idea is sometimes a challenge, but the greater challenge is to know it in one’s own experience. How can we transform “head learning” into “heart knowing”? We are fortunate to have Elizabeth West to guide us on this path.
Elizabeth brings a long experience of the Christian contemplative tradition, combined with deep study of the Buddhist tradition under B. Alan Wallace, and familiarity with the Vedic and Adwaita traditions.
The core of the process will be the cycle of introductory talk, shared silence and then discussion of insights gained. Depending on the weather, it may be possible to use the surrounding fields and trees in this beautiful and peaceful location, for example for walking meditation. A light lunch of various vegetarian soups, cheeses, bread and fruit will be served.
Harlestone Village Institute is located in a tranquil rural setting on the edge of the Althorp Park estate, yet it is only a mile from the outskirts of Northampton.There is central heating and ample parking. Unfortunately there is no disabled access. A map will be provided with the joining instructions.
