21-25 May 2017: Bali Retreat with Lama Marut and Cindy Lee

GOOD-HEART-web-FIN

This annual ASC sponsored Asia retreat will feature yoga, meditation, dharma, relaxation, music, and fun in an idyllic setting in beautiful Bali. The teachings this year at will center on the practice of “lolong,” the ancient Tibetan practice for “developing the good heart.” The text we’ll be using for our discussions, The Seven Points of Mind Training, covers all aspects of a complete spiritual practice: recognizing the problems of an unenlightened life, generating compassion for all living beings, and cultivating intelligence about the true nature of the world and of ourselves. Presented as a series of aphorisms, the text instructs us on how to live a happy life, no matter what the circumstances, with a heart of love and a mind suffused with wisdom.

New! Pastoral Care with Jaki Fisher

Pastoral care is an ancient model of emotional and spiritual support that can be found in all cultures and traditions.

Jaki Fisher recently graduated from a two year Buddhist pastoral care program in the U.S and just finished a 10 week placement at a large hospital in Melbourne, providing pastoral care to people from all faiths as they faced various life challenges.

She would like to offer pastoral care to the ASC community to provide a space for people to share their concerns and find their own way through whatever is going on for them. 

Pastoral care shares some similarities with counselling but it is more focused on listening and finding meaning rather than on solving a particular problem. 

The sessions will be twice a month on Saturday afternoon from 4-4.45pm and 4.50-5.20pm and the cost will be $10 for 45 minutes. To make an appointment, please email Jaki at jakifish@gmail.com
