April 22: SEX, SHADOW AND THE UNSPOKEN, SUSSEX, UK

Practising Mystery and Awe With Our Animal Body A Day of Zen Practice in Sussex with Flint Sparks

The Sussex Sangha is thrilled to welcome Flint back to Sussex for a one-day “mini-retreat” on Saturday, 22nd April 2017. The day will include teachings, meditation, and opportunities for discussion and inquiry, and will be suitable for both new and experienced practitioners.

Flint Sparks has nearly four decades of experience in the practice and teaching of psychotherapy, including as an IFS T eacher and senior Hakomi T rainer; he was one of the people appointed by Ron Kurtz as a Hakomi Legacy Holder. He is also a Zen teacher who leads retreats throughout North America and Europe. He is dedicated to assisting people in the skilful removal of blocks to love, both inside and outside, and is a clear and caring resource on the path of freedom from unnecessary suffering.

This day will be an opportunity for us to examine the often hidden belief that spiritual practice is about attaining some sort of purity. Rather than seeing the pinnacle of spiritual practice as transcendent, we can cultivate an appreciation for the mystery and awe of life itself and the play of light and dark in our human bodies as we seek loving relationships.

WHEN? Saturday, 22nd April 2017, 10 am to 6pm. A vegetarian lunch will be provided.
WHERE? The Old School, Cuckfield RH17 5LA. There is ample parking nearby. The nearest rail station is Haywards Heath, a couple of miles away.
HOW MUCH? £85. A discounted fee of £75 applies to bookings made before March 14th. A limited number of partial work-exchange bursaries may be available.
