The Buddha Gardener

Sunday, 22nd January 2017

The fifth month of our popular members’ talks is here and with it another unique subject that was presented. The January’s talk was done by David on the topic of The Buddha Gardener. It was a very interesting talk that engaged everybody in a fruitful discussion and explored how gardening is, amongst other things, also an incredible way to develop our mindfulness and other Buddhist values. David also talked about the psychotherapeutical concept of Actualizing Tendency by Carl Rogers which delved into the subject of each organism having a potential of becoming its ultimate self and the ideal conditions that can allow it to be fully realised in the plant kingdom as well as the human one. Thank you, David, again for your enlightening topic and approach.

Next month, Lena will be back to expand on her first talk. Therefore, we can all look forward to “Mental Health and Mindfulness Part 2” which will happen on Saturday the 18th of February 2017 in our centre from 15pm to 17pm. Everybody is invited.

Below you can find David’s recorded talk:
