The Five Spiritual Faculties


Five week course with Karunagita
5 Thur evenings 23 April – 21 May
7pm – 9.30pm £70/35.

The 5 spiritual faculties are:
Faith
Wisdom
Energy
Concentration
Mindfulness.

We will all naturally be stronger in some of these than others. Together they give us an important model for developing greater awareness of ourselves and our habitual tendencies, then making an effort to deepen whatever aspects are initially weaker. We can also see this as a practice of integration, drawing together different the aspects of ourselves so we can engage with life more fully, deeply and enthusiastically.
Each week includes sessions of meditation with movement and walking as well as exploration of the theme.
