Get Unbusy: Defecting from the Cult of Busyness

A 4-week MWC Course with Charu Ramesh

Get Unbusy

This four class course draws upon texts like the Ashtavakra Gita, Bhagavad Gita, Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life and the Yoga Sutras, to help us loosen the grip of busyness on our lives. We will look at what fuels our compulsive busyness, how to generate some breathing space and explore how we can discriminate between productive and unproductive actions.

The structure of the four sessions is as follows:

Class 1 – Defining the problem

The problem with being busy, why we are so busy.

Class 2 – Getting organized

Differentiating between effort and laziness, Understanding the motivations for taking action.

Class 3 – Mindfulness in action and in refraining from action

Class  4 – Acting freely with wisdom

The right way to act and its potential to free us from suffering.

To really understand and be able to put these teachings into practice, we encourage you to attend all four sessions.

#39_September 2015 – Recharge Your Practice

waterfall

 

Recharge Your Practice

Sometimes we lose sight of our practice, we start to become restless, confusion creeps in and soon, doubt starts to knock on our door. Suddenly life just doesn’t seem quite right. It feels like we are searching for something but we can’t quite put our finger on it. One of the antidotes for restlessness and doubt is an inspiring dharma talk. Invigorating and refreshing, a talk could help re-ignite your practice.

Please allow us to warmly invite you to one or all of Lama Marut and Cindy Lee’s talks.

23-25 October for 4 classes of “Get Unbusy” at Oasis Holistic
27th October “From Victimhood to Mastery” at Cocoon Studio
30th October to 1st November “Meditations to Discover the Divine in Everyday Life” at Pure Yoga

Hope to see you there!

#35 May 2015 – Acceptance

unnamedAcceptance

What captivated me the most during the retreat in Borobudur was when Lama Marut led us into two meditations. His words impacted me and made me more aware of the way I consciously or subconsciously view others. It was an excellent eye opener really. His quote continues to reverberate in my consciousness everyday:

“Some people will like you; some people will never like you. And if you try hard to make them like you, the greater the distance they create.”

It is a strong reminder that when I can’t change it why worry?

And when I can change it why worry?
