Rejoicing in Mudita – an online retreat with Venerable Canda
Sat, Jan 23rd: 9.30 to 16.30 GMT or 5.30pm to 12.30am (+1D) SG/MY Time
To support ourselves and others, and remain balanced in challenging times, the Buddha gave us the practice of muditā (sympathetic joy). As one of the brahmavihārās (divine abodes), it encourages the celebration of happiness, success, freedom and joy, of others as well as inside oneself. Learning how to do this nurtures and inspires us, making it easier to tap into feelings of compassion, kindness and even love, also when faced with suffering.
On this retreat Ven. Candā will offer different ways to recognise, cultivate and celebrate our inherent goodness, and explore how focussing on the goodness of life as a path to our own happiness also contributes to the happiness of all sentient beings. The day will include sitting and walking meditation, Dhamma talks and Q&A.
