How to deal with the Corona Pandemic using Buddhist World view and practices
Time & Location
11. apr. 2020 14.00 – 12. apr. 2020 16.00
About the Event
We are launching a new series of teachings and meditations to address the corona outbreak, introducing the Buddhist Mindset and how it can be of benefit during isolation, dealing with emerging fears, anxiety, and disturbing emotions.
In these first 2 sessions we will be exploring the concept of Mind and Meditation.
How Meditation can address fear and what types of meditations we can put into practice?
The first two sessions will take place on:
- Saturday April 11 from 14h till 16h
- Sunday April 12 from 14h till 16h
These are donation based teachings, so we kindly ask you to consider that we are able to host and organise them as a result of previous students having donated.
Although presented as a drop-in course, which you can join for one session or more, we encourage ongoing attendance for optimal understanding and benefit. The frequency of the teachings will depend on the input from the students and in collaboration with our teacher, so do join the launch and be a part of that dicussion.

About Ven. Mary Reavey
Led by a love of adventure and trekking, Mary Reavey was a staff nurse when she first encountered Buddhism at Kopan Monastery, Nepal in 1978. Mary attended a month-long course taught by Lama Thubten Yeshe and Lama Zopa Rinpoche who emphasised the importance of meditation and taking complete responsibility for your own actions and their effects.
In 2001 Mary took ordination as a nun with Lama Zopa Rinpoche, then taught meditation and Buddhist philosophy at Jamyang Buddhist Centre Leeds, Buddhist centres in Preston, Liverpool, and at Armley Prison, Dumfries Prison, Leeds General Infirmary, St. James’ Hospital and Wheatfields Hospice where she held regular meditation sessions until 2012.
Over the years Ven Mary has undertaken and led many meditation retreats. She completed a one-year solitary retreat in 2014.
She continues to regularly teach at Jamyang Buddhist Centre Leeds, Jamyang Liverpool and in York. Ven Mary has recently moved to Jedburgh in order to live nearer to Land of Joy Retreat Centre where she regularly leads retreats.
