Fri 25 Jan: "Structure of the enlightened mind" talk by Richard Reoch, the director of the London Shambhala Centre, 7:30pm

This Friday we are invited to the town Buddhist Society's talk by Richard Reoch, the director of the London Shambhala Centre. He is an excellent speaker, and this promises to be a very interesting talk.

Shambhala is the name of a mythical enlightened society, and the Shambhala Training offers instruction in meditation and contemplative practice within a secular context. The form of their practice derives from the teachings of Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, whose many writings include, "Shambhala: The Sacred Path of the Warrior", "Meditation in Action", and "Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism."

Richard is the author of "Dying Well - a holistic guide for the dying and their carers". He has worked in many parts of the world as a senior member of Amnesty International.

2 Feb: Imbolc, also known as Candlemass

Imbolc, celebrated on Feb. 2nd is also known as Candlemass. Candles are important at this ceremony. Days are lengthening, and although the weather may be cold we are aware that life is definately stirring and returning to the earth.

At Imbolc the accent is on the goddess, in youthfulness. One of the customs associated with Imbolc is making a Bridie Doll (a corn dollie) and in Ireland they celebrate St. Briget's Day. In one coven we used to dress up the youngest female all in white and she would wear a wreath of candles on her head.

Sat 2nd Feb (Imbolc / Candlemass), 6-12pm

Sun 10 Feb: SUBUD 'Get Together' with video, 6pm

Hello, this is Ralph - I am the new chair of Subud Cambridge. This events page is always good for a surprise:
The subud policy world wide is, NOT to advertise, but to provide information for the spiritual seeker. I am convinced, that many people who have a faith believing in God (Christian, Jewish, Islam, Hindu, Baha'i and especially Quakers) would benefit and deepen their faith by joining our spiritual practice (letting go of our own will and opening / surrendering to and 'receiving' God's will). Subud is NOT a religion - but most members have their own religion or are 'free spirits'.

So this Sunday we have an informal party style socialising and will watch a video about Subud. This time it will be open for interested people as well.
VENUE: private (in central Cambridge).

If YOU are interested, please contact Ralph or another Subud member. I recommend, that you come to East Barnwell Centre on a Tuesday or Friday just after 9pm for a chat and cup of tea (details).

Tue 25 June: Chanting - a devotional practice for all faiths
presentation by Ralph Nimmann, 8pm, Upper Room Wesley Church

The Cambridge Inter-Faith Group invites: The human voice as the most perfect instrument provides the possibility to connect with our soul and with God. This is why in many faith traditions the use of the voice plays an essential part. It resonates with the chakra system, activates the flow of subtle energies, upliftis the mood, balances mind and aura and can lead to a state of blissful joy. The deeper breathing activates and rejuvenates the body.

Chanting chooses sacred phrases or mantras from various traditions. They are sung repeatedly for minutes or hours and can create a strong feeling of community and connectedness.
Chanting can lead to mystic experiences beyond understanding. It helps to bring body mind and soul into balance and is very beneficial in our mind dominated society, especially for intellectuals.

The evening will consist of talk, presentation with optional participance and discussion.

Ralph Nimmann has led chanting groups since 1988. He is also a teacher of Dances of Universal Peace, which add movements to the chanting.
