A day exploring the theme of interconnectedness
We live in a world which focuses on and values the individual, many of us living separated and autonomous lives, with very little sense of a deeply rooted connection to community. We can feel ourselves disconnected from the world around us and this has led to a world where many people feel increasingly isolated, separate, and alone.
With this disconnection can come a deep sense of longing for a way of perceiving and experiencing ourselves and the world as deeply connected. Ultimately, what we desire is something of the pure and essential nature of love.
This day is experiential, with the aim of helping us all to connect more deeply. We will be using meditation, guided visualisation, simple rituals and exercises, as well as exercises from the practice of systemic constellations, to help us to start to ‘see with the heart’.
To attend the day, it is not essential that you have experience of practising meditation or Buddhism, but as this is an experiential day using some exercises from the practice of systemic constellations, which can at times be powerful and cathartic, it is essential that you feel you have the resources to take responsibility for your own physical and mental health.
We will have a shared lunch between 12.30 – 1.30.
Led by Cittavasin
Cittavasin was ordained by Atula in 2004. Many people will be familiar with Atula and his work, which has been a significant influence on how Cittavasin approaches his life and practice. The focus of his work is to look at how we can be more fully present with our experience, to come into a deeper relationship with the fullness of our being in order that we can lead a more deeply integrated life. He has always retained a keen interest in psychotherapy, group work, and the perspectives of shamanism. He has been a qualified occupational therapist for over 30 years, and trained in systemic constellations work since 2009.
