On Friday I visited the Manjushri Meditation Centre in Ulveston.
This is a wonderful site Encompassing a beautiful temple and stately home. History joins modern faith, relaxation joins the sea. The setting links the countryside and the estuary and provides a perfect location to recharge and to explore life away from the buzz and excitement of the office, factory or streets.
Accompanied by the Police Chaplains we explored the site with an amiable and extremely well informed guide. Open as both a place of faith and a place for meditation this centre has a lot to offer anyone and everyone.
In this age of digital distraction where reflection and thought are often supplanted by adherence and measurement it is often challenging to take time out to think. Yet that is what we need to do. A recent quote I picked up talks about management not needing to be seen to do things, but needing to think. This centre provides that space and redirects the mind to consider the important aspects of life
And this brings me to some thinking out the box which I think is both informative and impactive
The changing paradigm it suggests for education is as much a necessity for other areas of public and indeed private life.
Spending time thinking without the box is indeed something that should be encouraged.
I hope you enjoyed the video.
