Rebirth | Ajahn Brahmavamso

Rebirth | Ajahn Brahmavamso

July 25, 2019

Rebirth isn’t just a fundamental teaching of Buddhism, but also a very useful teaching that helps us see the BIG picture, not just of one life, but of many lives. It can help us to understand where we’ve come from, how we’ve developed certain characteristics and tendencies, and where we’re going. Equipped with modern evidence about the reality of rebirth, Ajahn Brahm gives a talk about the nature and value of the teaching of rebirth.

Kathryn Choules | Mindfulness, Reactivity To Response | The Armadale Meditation Group

Kathryn Choules | Mindfulness, Reactivity To Response | The Armadale Meditation Group

July 24, 2019

Kathryn's first of four weeks at AMG. Kathryn began meditating over 25 years ago at the Armadale group (AMG). She is the founder of “Mind and Movement”, a leading provider of mindfulness programs for individuals and organisations and is a certified teacher of Jon Kabat-Zinn’s program, “Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction” (MBSR) and recognised as a Senior Teacher by the Meditation Association of Australia.

We humans have a tendency to react rather than respond to all manner of situations, both internal and external. Kathryn explains why this occurs and how best to retrain the mind to respond rather than react. When we react to stimuli, both internal and external, a chemical is generated and released within our bodies. Kathryn details ways of shortening the time it takes for us to return from those situations that cause us to remain in that stressed state of mind. Mindfully being aware that it is happening will allow us to return to normal in a shorter period of time or, at the very least, shorten the time it takes for those chemicals to dissipate.

Kathryn then guided the group in meditation asking us to observe what occurs and how we react to it. Be it to a small sound or part of our body, how we react is what matters. This meditation is a smidge over 30 minutes and suitable for beginners and experienced alike.

After meditation Kathryn continued her discussion and talk on our reactions to the sensations we felt during the meditation with a focus on what we noticed or became aware of and not over-reacting.

Knowing | Ajahn Brahmavamso

Knowing | Ajahn Brahmavamso

July 24, 2019

Faced with critics spreading doubt about whether we really can know about such things as rebirth, Ajahn Brahm counters that the point of Buddhism isn’t just to blindly believe but to investigate phenomena ourselves. The Buddha’s teaching doesn’t insist on blind obedient faith, but encourages inquiry, and offers people the tools to understand our own experience with greater clarity and depth. This talk by Ajahn Brahm isn’t so much about what to know, but how to know, and how to know for sure.
