Wisdom of Impermanence – Day Course

October 16 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

$45

Wisdom of Impermanence
day meditation course
online & onsite

Saturday 16 October

In reality, everything is impermanent – transforming, changing like lightening from one moment to the next – like a dream. Rather than connecting with reality, we hold onto a belief that everything, including ourselves, remain the same – perhaps only changing very gradually over time. Buddha taught that nothing exists in this way. The reality is that everything that we see or perceive is momentary.

When through contemplation, we understand the truth of impermanence, we will see that there is no sense in developing attachment or anger because there is nothing remaining or abiding from one moment to the next. With this wisdom we can reduce our delusions and realize our limitless potential for positive change. In this course we will learn to contemplate and meditate on this knowledge so we develop profound wisdom. These teachings, given by Buddha Shakyamuni, will help us see that our conceptual thoughts are temporary, like water bubbles. With this wisdom of impermanence we can make our mind calm and relaxed, and solve all our daily problems.
