WhoTeacher: Lama Gelongma Zangmo
This course is especially for those who are new to meditation and it is a perfect follow-up for those who have previously attended the Introduction to Meditation courses. 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 in the different aspects of Shamatha meditation, such as using sight, breathing and inner focus to tame the mind, and methods to develop compassion for oneself and others.
If time and space allows, there will also be instructions in walking meditation, and explanation on how to bring awareness into daily life outside of formal meditation sessions.
The course will run over four Wednesday evenings 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.
Traditionally the Buddhist teachings are given freely because they are considered priceless and those receiving the teachings practice generosity, or Dana, by making monetary offerings for the centre. This generosity is not payment for goods or services rendered; it is an offering given, freely from the heart, in appreciation for receiving the precious instructions that can help better one’s life and the lives of others.
Making a donation directly helps to provide all the necessary conditions for the study and practice of meditation and Buddhism, bringing teachers to teach and maintaining a spiritual community as well as contributing to the considerable expenses that are involved in running a centre. We are grateful for your support and hope to continue to provide a space of peace and calm dedicated to promoting world peace and good health of body and mind.
