Dharma~Delia is a Buddhist-based meditation class for people with an interest in the exploration of consciousness, including through the use of psychedelic substances, or other practices.
It is a contemplative space to explore ways in which the Tibetan Buddhist wisdom can help us:
► Inquire into the nature of reality
You might have experienced different practices from a number of wisdom traditions, but are left wondering about long-lasting transformation or how to make everyday life meaningful
► Make sense of a peak experience
You might have had peak experiences involving a profound sense of peace, contentment or compassion
► Cultivate some of the insights gained on a psychedelic journey
You might have experienced a deep sense of interconnectedness, or gazed straight into the face of impermanence and the cycle of life and death.
► Feel better prepared for one —or for the journey that is life!
By training the stability, openness and lucidity of our minds.
This class will be experiential, focused on sitting meditation, and blend informal Dharma chats with a variety of meditative practices. It will seek to continuously evolve in order to meet the needs of those who attend.
★ Please arrive early for a start of the session at 7pm.
★ The event will take place the the new Psychedelic Society HQ, in Homerton (8 Mackintosh Lane, London E9 6AB)
