3. Public Talk, Harare: “A Moral Compass for the Journey of Mindfulness” – Fri 23rd September, 2016
Secular forms of mindfulness are proving themselves very beneficial to our modern times. They open a door to self-discovery which can be an ideal basis for further work of human psychological or spiritual maturity, be it Buddhist or that of another value-system. Ken will help us have more of a birds-eye view of the possibilities of mindfulness.

3. Weekend Teachings, Harare: “12 Links of Interdependent Origination” – Fri 24th – Sat 25th September, 2016
Interdependence sits at the very heart of the Buddha’s teaching. Some aspects of how we depend on each other and the world around us are obvious: others less so and some totally invisible, except to the wise. The twelve links show how we come to make karma and later experience its results.
