Discovering Natural Dignity - Saturday 9th March

Discovering Natural Dignity
Saturday 9th March 10am until 4.30pm

‘From the first moment. . . of my acquaintance with you, your manners, impressing me with the fullest belief of your arrogance, your conceit, and your selfish disdain of the feelings of others, were such as to form the groundwork of disapprobation on which succeeding events have built so immovable a dislike’ Jane Austen

‘Social conformity. . . thwarts our instincts, and we can feel frustrated when those instincts are not gratified’ Henry Hitchings

These are ‘great years for individuality, but a disaster for manners’ Quentin Crisp

Personal freedom is a myth, a self-referencing delusion that destroys the very thing it seeks to achieve. Authentic freedom is grounded in Awareness; the Awareness that can be discovered on the sitting cushion, when dining with friends, or when stepping out onto the ballroom floor’. Lama Shé-zér & Lama Namgyal

With additional material from Quentin Crisp, Jane Austen, Henry Hitchings and Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche.
