Graduate Members' Seminars 2022

The 2021 Graduate series brought us a mindfulness movie night, a sound bathing experience, exploring the link between perception and our stories and finishing with emotional intelligence. It was a fantastic line up! This year we look forward to bringing you another range of topics and presenters. The seminars are designed for current members who have completed or are attending Level 4. The aim of these seminars is to provide a forum whereby members can explore ways of thinking about and integrating meditation into life; fully and consciously.

We are kicking off the Graduate Members seminar for 2022 with a special event.  Come along to the Botanic Gardens and participate in an evening of contemplative readings whilst enjoying a catered picnic dinner.

If you have a favourite poem, short reading or quote that you would like to share with the group please send to Ann at info@lifeflow.com.au by Monday 21 February.  These will be collated into a document that can be shared with everyone on the night.  You might like to contribute or you might just like to listen to others share their favourite contemplation. Either way, come along and join in the fun.

The picnic will be gluten free and vegetarian based, with everyone getting an individual picnic box. Drinks will also be served.

All you need to do is bring your own chair or picnic blanket/cushions.

Cost: $45

Seminar Four

Meditation and the Christian Wisdom Tradition

Presenter: Ian Nuberg

Friday 25 November
5.45 pm–7.15 pm
Lifeflow Studio

Many people understand meditation to be a spiritual practice. This last seminar of the year will begin by putting words around what this really means in a practical sense, and why we would want to do this. Ian will then share how investigating his Christian heritage is deepening his own spiritual practice and orientation.  After practicing Vedic and Buddhist meditation and philosophies for 49 years Ian is discovering the Christian Wisdom tradition to be the most natural and authentic container to hold spiritual gratitude and universal love, for him at least.  However, to come to this realisation is demanding either a shedding or re-interpretation of mainstream church concepts in the light of recent Christian scholarship. Even if you were not born into a Christian family, you live in a nominally Christian culture. So regardless of your religious orientation (or even aversion) there should be something in this seminar of interest “…for those who have eyes to see and ears to hear” (that’s a Jesus quote!).

Bookings open late February.
