Sa 10 bis 18 Uhr

So 10 bis 15.30 Uhr


Inhalt: We will explore what happens when we cultivate these qualities directly in meditation. We will also see that we can cultivate the same qualities

indirectly when we practice mindfulness of breathing and listening. Martine

Batchelor will point out that by inquiring deeply into change and

conditionality in meditation we will be able to develop creative wise

compassion. We will also explore what it means to be equanimous. Loving

kindness is seen as an antidote to ill-will, compassion as an antidote to

cruelty, appreciative joy as an antidote to a feeling of lack and

disconnection, and equanimity an antidote to resentment. We will cultivate

those qualities as a means to develop a stable and kind heart. This in turn

will help us to deeply engage with the world and respond creatively to

She was ordained as a Buddhist nun in Korea in 1975 and studied Zen Buddhism under the guidance of the late Master Kusan at Songgwang Sa monastery until 1984. Her Zen training also took her to nunneries in Taiwan and Japan. From 1981 she served as Kusan Sunim's interpreter and accompanied him on lecture tours throughout the United States and Europe. Following Master Kusan’s death she returned her nun’s vows and returned to Europe with her husband, Stephen, in 1985. She was a member of the Sharpham North Community in Devon, England for six years and worked as a lecturer and spiritual counsellor both at Gaia House and elsewhere in Britain. She was also involved in interfaith dialogue and was a Trustee of the International Sacred Literature Trust until 2000.

In 1992 she published, as co-editor, 'Buddhism and Ecology'. In 1996 she published, as editor, 'Walking on Lotus Flowers' which in 2001 was reissued under the title 'Women on the Buddhist Path’. She is the author of 'Principles of Zen', 'Meditation for Life' (an illustrated book on meditation), ‘The Path of Compassion’ (a translation from the Korean, with reference to the original Chinese, of the Brahmajala Sutra, i.e. the Bodhisattva Precepts), ‘Women in Korean Zen’ and ‘Let Go: A Buddhist Guide to Breaking Free of Habits’. Her latest book is ‘The Spirit of the Buddha’.
