Practicing in Uncertain Times

Finding Peace in the World we Live:

In these uncertain times living in the midst of the pandemic, has forced many of us to change the way we live and what we take for granted. It can be difficult to practice with all that is going on around us especially without our normal contact with family, friends and local classes we normally visit.  However, there are still opportunities we can tap into such as online classes, talks and teachings that can inspire us in our spiritual life and keep us connected with ourselves and others.

The Buddhas famous proclamation from the Diamond Sutta: “So should you view this fleeting world …….as a bubble in a stream”  is a challenging saying  but also inspiring to look beyond and into our experience of impermanence. Below is information and links that maybe useful to you and they may offer some ideas and inspiration.
