Wednesday evening is devoted to Meditation.
We offer two complementary classic Buddhist practices:
- Mindfulness of Breathing to develop awareness and concentration.
- Metta Bhavana to develop warm positive emotion and compassion,
Doors open at 7pm
Classes start at 7.15pm and end at 8.15pm ( There will be no access after this time so please arrive on time.)
Aimed at people who have little or no experience of the above practices.
In addition to helping you with good posture we will support you in developing your own practice through led meditations. We will also encourage you to try meditation at home.
The Buddha described the mind as a wild animal, and often our experience of meditation is to be overwhelmed by thoughts, however, our aim is not to force the mind into submission but to learn how to expand it.
Meditation is a skill and through practice and patience we can learn to calm the mind to enjoy a rich awareness of our experience; a clarity, stillness and blissful delight in every moment.
The evening will end around 8.15pm.
