This course will cover the foundations of Zen Mindfulness Meditation starting off with an exploration of the original Therevada Buddhist teachings which are directly relevant to us today, in terms of dealing with the immediate stress and difficulty in our lives.

We will progress to touching some of the deeper aspects of Zen Understanding, which goes straight to the heart of the difficulties of the human condition and points to a way to live every aspect of life in fullness.

The classes will also draw on the current Western Mindfulness research and the recent developments in evolutionary biology which question the validity of our whole way of life in modern society.

We will explore this work through a combination of guided meditation, group discussion, Qi Gong execises and some simple enactments influenced by dance therapy.

The course has a spiritual emphasis, not a religious one and is open to anyone of any background.

The course fee includes a Course Booklet and access to mp3 guided meditations to practice with.

Zen Mindfulness Discussion Evening : Mindfulness & Mental Illness - April 21st 2016

Location: Luxembourg.

Taught by Anthony Fidler

Date : Thursday 21st April 19.00-21.00

This evening is open to anyone interested in exploring how Mindfulness based practices may be of use to someone experiencing anxiety, depression or patterns of psychosis, however this is understood.

I welcome those currently experiencing symptoms, as well as those caring for people with issues whether as a family member of friend or as a mental health professional.

Other than MBCT for depression, there are currently no officially recognised Mindfulness courses designed for serious mental illness, but from my own experience, relatively simple practices can be life saving and provide a path to a more stable and satisfying relationship to our lives.

My intention with this class is to facilitate a group based exploration rather than follow a lecture format, but I will be happy to answer questions on my own experiences.

I don't want to present myself as a qualified medical specialist of any kind, other than having completed a general Mindfulness training. My interest in this topic is as an individual with deep personal experience of all of the above issues, over a twenty year period. There was no Western Mindfulness available to me at the time and so I made my own way, exploring Buddhist Vipassana and Tai Chi and it has helped enormously.

I am very excited about leading my first Mindfulness class on this topic (it was my original reason for going through the training) and hope it will be prove useful to those attending. I expect it to act as a complement to my general Zen Mindfulness practical courses.

The class will include two relevant meditation practices, the first focusing on deep relaxation and the second on compassionate self awareness, acceptance of reality as it is and connection to others.

Zen Mindfulness Discussion Evening : Saving Ourselves from Ourselves - An Introduction to the Philosophy of Buddhism - April 28th 2016

Taught by Anthony Fidler

Date : Thursday 28th April 19.00-21.00

This evening is open to anyone interested in understanding Buddhism in all three of its aspects: Therevada Buddhism in particular the Burmese Vipassana as taught by S. N. Goenka, Chinese & Japanese Zen Buddhism and Tibetan Buddhism.

My intention with this class is to explore the philosophical framework in depth with a view to revealing how it is relevant to our lives today. I am not interested to present it as a relgion. My focus is on what we can learn from it and how we make use of it to become happier people.

I have been deeply interested in Buddhism since 1997 when I first started practising with the Goenka School and in 2013 I finally made the decision to join a Zen Sangha led by Father Ama Samy. My interest extends to the Tibetan lineages as well and I recently attended a high level teaching on Emptiness and Bodhicitta with a Geshe Lama under the Dalai Lama.

The class will include two relevant meditation practices, the first focusing on deep relaxation and the second on compassionate self awareness, acceptance of reality as it is and connection to others.

Zen Mindfulness Discussion Evening : Mindfulness & Burnout October 23rd 2015

My intention with this class was to discuss the Western Mindfulness understanding of how burnout / nervous breakdown happens and what we can do to prevent it. I went through this experience myself a long time ago and found new insights while completing my Mindfulness teacher training in early October 2015.
