Event Description

Four afternoon sessions with David Brazier in Milan
(English with translation into Italian)
18 & 25 January + 1 & 8 February 2018

What do we need to be mindful of in relationships and, when we are in a relationship, what is our mind (and heart) actually full of? Love is not governed by logic. In this course, building upon our own experiences, we shall go deeper into the hidden dynamics that play out as we try to get closer to one another: the fear, the joy, the hurt, the longing, the ways in which we seek to love one another and cope with the difficulties and disappointments that inevitably arise. This course is suitable for anybody who has experience of life and especially for therapists and spiritual practitioners who may have the role of helping couples and of dealing with the stresses aroused in themselves in the course of their attempts to do so. This is an experiential course rather than a theoretical one. The theory behind it is largely drawn from Buddhist psychology that sees all intentional action as consequential and all intentions as conditioned in a variety of ways, and prescribes routes to liberation through compassion and insight. Whether you are interested from a professional or personal perspective, the personal dimension cannot be avoided and we shall, as far as possible, work with actual experience rather than abstract ideas.

MY MEDICAL CONDITION

Posted by David Brazier on June 26, 2019 at 18:04 6 Comments

My medical condition continues to be a mystery. It is clear that I do not have any of the big nasty things - brain tumour, cracked skull, stroke, etc - as these have been ruled out by MRI investigation. Nonetheless I continue to have persistent, continuous head pain that varies in intensity and I become exhausted by the least effort so that I am functioning like an invalid incapable of doing very much. There is always a possibility that the whole syndrome is a…

Grace.

“Do we know what it means to be struck by grace? It does not mean that we suddenly believe that God exists, or that Jesus is the saviour, or that the Bible contains the truth. Grace strikes us when we are in great pain and restlessness. It strikes us when we walk through the dark Valley of a meaningless and empty life. It strikes us when we feel that our separation is deeper than usual, because we have violated another life, a life which we loved, or from which we were estranged. It strikes us… Continue

This is a short video of a Buddhist monk and his family. 

It raised questions on parenting and Buddhism - does detachment (or perhaps quietism), as practiced here, lead to demotivation and disengagement with the world around one?

His children find the detachment practised by the monk disquieting. They appreciate the irony of detachment, which is supposed to…

I have recently been made aware of a practice known as Ho’ponopono. Ho’ponopono is an ancient Hawaiian healing practice, based on universal forgiveness, that was rediscovered and popularised in the 80s. A man called Joe Vitale(Hawaiian I think)  became enchanted by the practice after his daughter was healed from an…
