COVID-Safe UPDATE: We have implemented a COVID-safe plan here at LTC, and have reviewed it in relation to the current updates in the greater Brisbane area on Saturday 22 August. Our in-person meetings stringently adhere to physical distancing, hygiene, and thorough cleaning after each class. We have a 22 person limit in the gompa, and have all our seating is assigned and spaced appropriately. When you attend in-person, we encourage you to wear a facemask, and we have them freely available at the door for anyone who needs.
This class will be held IN PERSON at Langri Tangpa Centre in Camp Hill. Bookings are essential as we have limited places. Please register to avoid disappointment and ensure your place! We ask you to observe physical distancing, and to stay home if feeling even slightly unwell, with any cold or flu like symptoms, as well as allergies.
The class begins with settling the posture and a simple mindfulness meditation, which is a non-religious and universally effective method to calm the mind. This is followed by a short talk given by the LTC western nuns. There is an opportunity to ask questions and discus a Buddhist perspective on current events.
The second meditation is focused on the Buddha and includes a gentle guided visualisation, and chanting the Shakyamuni Buddha mantra that can help overcome disturbing emotions, stress and negative karma. We end with heartfelt dedications for healing, for oneself, loved ones, and the world.
