WhoTeacher: Lama Gelongma Zangmo
This is a follow-up course for those people who have previously attended the Introduction to Meditation courses on Wednesdays or Thursdays. It will give an opportunity to clarify any uncertainties, and to deepen ones understanding, as well as getting more experience in the meditation sessions.
Lama Zangmo will give instructions on the different aspects of Shamatha meditation, or Shinay meditation in Tibetan. Each class will have time for instructions, as well as questions and answers and time for actual meditation.
Different aspects of meditation will be taught, including using sight, breathing and inner focus as a method to tame the mind and develop calm abiding.
If time and space allows, there will also be an introduction to walking meditation, and instructions on how to bring awareness into daily life outside of formal meditation sessions.
The course will run over four Weds and it is a requirement to commit to attend all four classes. Unless you are able to attend all the classes, we ask you not to book for the course. Each class will have time for instructions, questions and answers, as well as time for actual meditation.
Since January 2015 all our Dharma and meditation courses have been offered without a suggested course fee.
In the Buddhist tradition one practices generosity, or Dana, by making monetary offerings for the teachings. This generosity is not payment for goods or services rendered; it is an offering given freely from the heart in appreciation of the Dharma.
