In essence, meditation is simply the practice of paying attention to what we are doing while we are doing it, whatever this may be. In the Buddhist tradition, this type of attention is called mindfulness.
Meditation is the art of finding peace and happiness within by using simple methods of calming and stabilising our minds. Modern life can be stressful and busy. Most of the time we are carried along by the force of emotions, habits and conditioning and end up feeling tired and stressed by everyday life. Practicing meditation can change this. Meditation can help bring about a natural sense of peace and well-being that can extend to every aspect of our lives. People who meditate regularly tend to sleep better, handle the ups and downs of daily life with more clarity and ease and relate to others with more compassion and warmth.
This is a weekly course taking place every Wednesday evening for 4 weeks from 19.00 and 20.30 and is perfect for beginners. It will include posture, relaxation, breathing and other meditation essentials. A regular meditation practice can bring a greater sense of inner peace and calm an overactive mind.
This “Introduction to Meditation” course has limited spaces. Our courses tend to fill up quickly, so booking a place in advance is absolutely necessary. We can only guarantee admission to those with a confirmed booking. Booking for this course opens on 17th of August.
We do ask that people booking for this course commit to attend all the scheduled classes. If you are unable to commit to full attendance, please do not reserve a place which could have been given to someone else.
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.
