25 September: Meditation in Movement with Elena

This month we dedicate our meditation-and themeday to explore the connection with our bodies. How do we relate to our bodies in our everyday life? And how does this effect the quality of our relations and meditation?

10.30-12.30 We explore the theme of “slowing down” in the morning. The rhythm of the city can easlily be overwhelming. We will explore how we bring the attention more inward and listen to our bodies through movement.

13.30-15.30The theme of the afternoon will be “awareness in relating to others”. The quality of presence that we cultivate in meditative practices, is often experienced individually. We will explore how we can apply this in interaction with others. We will move together using different games and practices inspired both by buddhist teachings and non-violent martrial arts.

You can join for the whole day or for the morning or afternoon (with or without lunch).

Costs: you can contribute to this event on the base of dana (a gift, donation). We suggest €25 for the whole day including lunch while inviting you to take a moment to check with yourself what contribution feels faire and sustainable for you and the buddhist centre.

Elena Zanchettamy life right now revolves around following and researching my passion for authentic communication. This becomes concrete in the way I live: community, sharing space, time and energy to co-create nests wherever I am. I strive for honesty and self-responsibility, openness and choice. In my work, teaching and researching NVC, movement meditations and body work/massaging. I am granted a lot of energy in this life and I decide to use it to create spaces and projects that nourish a sense of freedom and shared responsibility for each other (humans and not).

Soms wordt er gezegd dat het doel van boeddhistische beoefening is om inzicht te verwerven in de ware aard der dingen, en eigenlijk is dit ook zo. Maar de aard van dat inzicht is niet een algemeen, abstract, begrijpen en het komt niet zomaar. Er is veel voorbereiding voor nodig: allereerst moet men zijn/haar bewustzijn helder maken. (..) Volgens de boeddhistische traditie kan heel veel van deze voorbereiding het beste gedaan worden door een krachtige en creatieve meditatiebeoefening”.         uit:  Met gewaarzijn leven, Sangharakshita, pagina 9

“It is sometimes said that the aim of Buddhist practice is to attain insight into the true nature of
things, and that is fair enough, in a way. But the nature of that insight is not a general, abstract
understanding, and it will not come about by chance. A great deal of preparation is needed- first to
clarify one’s own consciousness (…) And according to tradition, much of this preparation is best done
through the vigorous and creative practice of meditation”

“Living with awareness”, Sangharakshita, page 7
