£25.00

Kindness, fellow feeling and the common weal. Retreat. Macclesfield, 2020

January 31 @ 3:30 pm - February 2 @ 1:00 pm
Townley Hall, Macclesfield, At the back of the United Reformed Church, Townley St
Macclesfield, SK11 6HZ United Kingdom

Kindness, fellow feeling and the common weal. Loving kindness, karuna, is the foundational attitude of Buddhism. Kindness sees all life as kind, as kin, as always-already-connected. With this view the barrier between self and other shrinks and we become inclusive in everything we do. This is deepened and supported by the wisdom of seeing our mind as it actually is. There will be regular periods of meditation. Click here for Information and Joining Instructions

Public talk. No sweat compassion. Cologne, 2020

April 8 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Dargyäling Dzogchen Gemeinschaft, Spielmannsgasse 14
Köln, 50678 Germany

James Low. Public Talk. No sweat compassion.  Ethical responsivity is intrinsic to non-duality.

This talk will be in English and interpreted in German. It will be followed by the Dzogchen Easter Retreat with James Low in Kamalashila Institute. This retreat is suitable for beginners. Tickets for the talk in Cologne may be reserved…

Dzogchen Eifel retreat. Don’t push the river. April 2020

April 9 @ 9:00 am - April 12 @ 1:00 pm
Kamalashila Institute, Mayen-Koblenz Kirchstraße 22
Langenfeld, 56729 Germany

James Low. Don’t push the river. Don’t push the river, don’t dam the flow. Direct it or put it to work – the desire for mastery over events is the meditator’s prison. Self-arising, self-liberating – the empty vanishing object frees the empty vanishing subject. This mutual freeing reveals awareness, clarity and responsivity – the heart of both dzogchen and mahamudra. The focus will be on practice. Recommended arrival day: Wednesday, April 8, 2020 (please state this when registering) Please register for…

May 30 - May 31
Mindfulness Milan Center, Via Cenisio 5
Milan, Italy

James Low. Weekend Teaching retreat. Topic: Meet others where they are with mindful compassion. In Buddhism we develop compassion so that we can help other sentient beings.

The ever-healing whole. Emerson College. East Sussex, June 2020

June 11 - June 14
Emerson College, East Sussex, Ashdown Forest, Forest Row
East Sussex, RH18 5JX United Kingdom

The ever healing whole. Resting in the ever-open is the one key to all locked rooms of separation, isolation and pseudo-autonomy. All wars, cruelty, exploitation, and disregard for the common good arise from unawareness of the ever-open from which we have never been apart.  Through meditation and reflection we will open to being present where we are, as we are, available and ready to work with circumstances. For other information see the organiser’s website. Registration will begin on the afternoon…
