I have walked that long road to freedom.
I have tried not to falter; I have made missteps along the way.
But I have discovered the secret that after climbing a great hill,
one only finds that there are many more hills to climb.
I have taken a moment here to rest,
to steal a view of the glorious vista that surrounds me,
to look back on the distance I have come.
But I can only rest for a moment, for with freedom come responsibilities,
and I dare not linger, for my long walk is not ended.
This 10-week programme offers new meditations and deepens the understanding of the main concepts and practices learnt in Mindful Beginnings.
This programme is offered in weekly or bi-weekly two-hour sessions depending on the groups's preference.
The ten themes:
There are times to stay put, and what you want will come to you,
and there are times to go out into the world and find such a thing for yourself.
The first thing you discover is
a kind of emptiness,
a presence which doesn't seem to have content to it,
like looking up
at a limitless sky.
That boundary-less place
is your own consciousness,
When you relax into it,
you realize that it's also full -
it is everything.
You realize this presence is
what you really are: Love.
