The Four Foundations of Mindfulness teaching of this Sutta of the Pali Cannon is the basic teaching for Mindfulness Meditation in the Buddhist literature.
It teaches meditation on the body, feelings, perceptions and mental states and is the basis for the present day 'Mindfulness' practices. Each week we will focus on one part of the teaching and practice the corresponding meditations and discuss them.
The Wednesday evenings will begin at 6.30pm and last about one and a half hours starting from 15 May.
Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 June
It will be held at the Buddhist centre and will allow for residential and non residential participants. The retreat will be facilitated by Quentin 'Genshu' who is the lay ordained Zen monk from Open Way Zen. Quentin has been teaching at the centre for some time and would like to give students the opportunity to practice over this period of time to deepen their practice of mindfulness within a retreat setting.
Quentin has been studying Buddhism during his medical training in Adelaide in the late 1960's. As a Doctor studying public health in Sydney he continued his study within the Thai Sangha and also received teachings from the late Lama Yeshe of the FPMT organisation. His journey has led him to many different teachers and retreats until he met Master Hogen-san, who ordained him in 2005 and gave him the Dharma name 'Genshu'. Master Hogen-san has given him permission to teach according to the Open Way Zen tradition and he has been doing so both here in Cairns and also in PNG, where he has a lovely growing sangha.
The retreat will start at 9am on Saturday and finish at 5pm on Sunday

We invite you to join Bob who will be facilitating a weekend workshop that supports people with serious illness to develop a view of life, themselves, the future and what is of most significance. The course will help provide the tools to support, nourish and sustain one through a serious health crisis with an emphasis on meditation practice and discussions based on simple Buddhist concepts of healing. The workshop is accessible to everyone regardless of their health, spiritual faith or belief. Topics will include: Introduction to Meditation, Understanding Impermanence and Interdependence, Cultivating Love and Compassion, Generating Positive Emotions and Taking it Further - deepening practice in daily life.
"Bob is a Melbourne psychologist (often described by Ven Thubten Lekshe as a 'fossil') who has been leading a weekly Healing Meditation program at Tara Institute, a large Buddhist centre in Melbourne, for the past 22 years. The program was started by the Ven Lama Zopa Rinpoche in 1991 and after that first 5-day course he asked Bob to keep leading them (so the fossil status is well earned!). The initial impetus was to have a program that focused on people with a life-threatening illness. However, over the years the focus has evolved to a broader focus on the deepest yearning at the heart of all human beings for a feeling of well-being and wholeness. The groups are open and wide-ranging in the use of poetry, story and metaphor alongside meditations, reflections and contemplations that are deeply rooted in the Buddhadharma. This weekend will give participants an opportunity to reflect deeply on their own life-long journey of healing. It will also provide a place for you to make a start on a healing journey if you are dealing with a difficult or new diagnosis."
Workshop includes: Lunch, morning and afternoon tea Sat/Sun. Please wear loose comfortable clothing.
