I have a Facebook Group titled Christopher Titmuss Teachings with around 780 members so far. I invite members to respond to my weekly question. I wish to give a voice to others to share in the space of a line or few lines their reflections on core questions in daily life. …
No word has an independent, self-existent meaning. The meaning of every word depends upon the general agreement of those who use it.
Take the word Anger for example. See its meaning in the Buddha’s teaching, which has a similar meaning in widespread public use.
Join our two days of Yom Kippur (Day of Repentance. Day of Atonement) to heal the past and expand the heart-mind for present and future.
We invite you to explore themes of repentance/regrets/errors of judgement/unresolved issues of the past and the unhelpful burden of guilt weighing upon heart and mind.
Sessions will look at fresh ways to look at experiences, impactful or subtle, with recognition of acts done or not done.
We will explore themes of atonement, of acts to make amends for what we said, wrote or did or failed to do. Day of Atonement will include ways to implement change through mindfulness, motivation, sharing, loving kindness and fresh perceptions.
You can share your experiences and concerns with others during the Zoom meeting if you wish,
We request confidentiality so no names are mentioned outside of our Zoom Meeting.

DAY OF REPENTENCE
Do you experience remorse? Do you have any regrets? Is there anything you feel sorry about? In thought, word or action or neglected to respond? Are you willing to take an honest look at the issue(s)? Awareness of the unresolved constitutes the first step towards change.
DAY OF ATONEMENT
Are you willing to find ways to make amends? What initiative will help you bring the issue(s) to closure? What steps do you need to take to make amends for any suffering, harm or neglect of ethics upon another(s), animals or the natural world? Is there any action required to show atonement for failings of the past, recent or decades ago.
The Jewish tradition wisely recognises the deep transformative significance of insights into repentance/atonement to dissolve the suffering of a situation. Yom Kippur reminds the Jewish community of the importance of such awareness with two days of the year dedicated to such reflections. This is the most important holy-day in their religious calendar.
All are welcome to join the two days – people of faith and people of secular views or both.
You will have the opportunity to offer a voice and listen to the voices of others.

Christopher Titmuss taught annual residential retreats in Israel between 1992 – 2019. He made annual visits to Palestine to give one-or-two-day workshops.
Christopher has accepted a kind invitation from Tovana to teach at the Tovana Centre in Ein dor, 90 minutes north from Tel Aviv in 2023.
Dharma teachings relate directly to experience and insight. The teachings do not require a religious or theoretical belief system.
This makes Dharma Inquiry an essential feature of the teachings alongside ethics, mindfulness, meditation, love, wisdom and liberation. …
