Vajradevi introduces: Uncontrived Mindfulness

Thursday 16 September 7pm – 9:30pm

Uncontrived Mindfulness: ending suffering through attention, curiosity and wisdom

A workshop where Vajradevi will introduce key ideas from her new book which draws on the satipatthana sutta with a focus on awareness and right view. She will also lead meditation in the style of the book, encouraging a receptive and natural way of being with experience, and with the precision of a dharma perspective. There will be time for questions and interaction during the session.

Vajradevi - author of the new release: 'Uncontrived Mindfulness'. 

Vajradevi was ordained into the Triratna Buddhist Order in 1995. She spearheaded Akashavana, an ordination retreat centre for women; property searching, puchasing and overseeing the building works. When not writing, Vajradevi teaches in retreat centres and is also a Trustee of the Shrewsbury Buddhist Centre.


"Her own substantial practice, together with the benefits of having studied satipatthana with some very good teachers, shines through. It makes a huge difference to realise that effective mindfulness practice does not have to be constantly effortful and contrived. Vajradevi points us to the awareness that is already naturally present; hence, “uncontrived mindfulness”.
