At times, we may see the Five Mindfulness Trainings (precepts) as rules based on ideas of ‘right’ and ‘wrong’, which are being imposed on us. Yet, the trainings can also be practised as tools of liberation, based on understanding how the consequences of our actions lead to suffering or happiness. Our openness to the wisdom conveyed in the Mindfulness Trainings is based on whether we perceive them as rules or guiding means.
After reciting the Five Mindfulness Trainings together, we will have an opportunity to share our experience, insights and challenges in applying the trainings to our daily life. We will also enjoy exercises, sitting & walking meditation, lunch, total relaxation.
