Mindfulness Milan Center, Via Cenisio 5

James Low Clarity and equanimity in a time of provocation. Dzogchen summer retreat. The movement of our minds often leads to disturbance in the environment around us and likewise the disturbance in our environment provokes thoughts, feelings and many hopes and fears.

We will look at how a Buddhist…

Relaxation and the self-liberation of phenomena. Gutenstein, Sept 2019

September 6 - September 8
Maitreya Institute, Gutenstein, 2770 Austria

James Low Relaxation and the self-liberation of phenomena The instability of our ego-self binds us to the ongoing activity of self-maintenance. Driven by hopes and fears we anxiously mobilise our energy to the task of getting more of what we want and less of what we don’t want. From the Buddhist point of view this ceaseless busyness is driven by our belief in duality, our felt sense that we and everything around us are separate real entities.  Struggling to remove…

Frankfurt, 60325 Germany

James Low Equanimity and the pull of the five poisons.  The power of the five poisonous afflictions (mental dullness, desire, aversion, jealousy and pride) is very strong and each affliction can easily pull us away from grounded harmony and into the treacherous security of taking up a position. However equanimity is the great quality of the Middle Way avoiding extremes. It is the poise dynamically balancing according to circumstances yet without bias in any direction and it reveals the freedom…
