BEING IN THE STREAM

An Evening of Practice and Discussion with Bernat Font

Southsea Sangha are very blessed to welcome guest teacher, Bernat Font for his first visit to Southsea, for an evening of dharma, practice and discussion.

This evening will revolve around the notion of commitment.

What inspires us and keeps us going in our path?
What blocks
our engagement?

A re-reading of "stream-entry", an old Buddhist concept referring to the first stage of awakening, allows us to see it not as an attainment to be reached through arduous efforts, but as the ongoing commitment to the dharma that makes progress possible. And in the end, awakening is no different.

To do this, we will explore a little known style of early Buddhist meditation that connects us with our aspirations, with the here and now as the only place where liberation happens, and with the presence of our spiritual friends.

The stream
moisturises our path with joy and enthusiasm.



BERNAT FONT is in teacher training at the Bodhi College, with Stephen Batchelor as his primary mentor. He became fascinated with the dharma in his early teens and has been practising in Europe, India and Myanmar since 2010. He is also pursuing a PhD in Buddhist Studies at the University of Bristol. A graduate from the Gaia House Community Dharma Leadership programme, he leads the small community “Sangha Secular” that he founded in his native Barcelona.
