Leicester Great Heart Circle - February 2013
An intimate gathering on a cold dark evening at the Great Meeting Unitarian Chapel in Leicester.
Our theme for discussion was integrating our meditation practice with daily life. There is a nice list of activities in Lama Surya Das' book "Awakening The Buddha Within" that we went through, which includes for example :
- Whenever you cross a threshold, got through a doorway, or enter a room, see it as entering a temple and do so reverently
- Walk barefoot in the grass or on a thick carpet and feel fully each sensation with your toes and soles
- Try chewing one single raisin for several minutes and experiencing everything you can about it
- Before speaking, notice what motivates your words
