Time to Meditate


Wednesdays 7.30pm – 8.30pm
Resuming on Wednesday 12th September 2018

‘Time to Meditate’ is not an introductory course in meditation but rather an opportunity and space just to sit and practice meditation together.  On alternate weeks we will also include a guided Loving Kindness practice. You are welcome to join us for a cup of tea afterwards.

These sessions are open to all and suited best for those with previous experience of meditation. No booking required.

What Meditation Really Is

Thursdays 7pm – 9pm
5 week course November 15th – December 13th

Module 2: Using  our  Senses,  Thoughts  and  Emotions  as  a  Support for Meditation

Often  when  we  meditate,  we  find  that  we  are  easily  distracted  by  our  senses,  thoughts  and  emotions.  A  pain  in  our  leg  or  back,  or  some  thoughts  about  our  day  circling  through  our  mind  in  a  seemingly  endless  loop  can  make  us  completely  forget  about  meditation. Rather  than  seeing  common  situations  like  these  as  something  we  need  to  avoid  or  eliminate  in  order  to  practise  ‘properly’,  this  module  shows  us  how  to  use  them  to  strengthen  and  support  our  meditation.

Instead  of  constantly  needing  to  react  to  whatever  passes  through  the  mind,  we  discover  how  to  let  go  of  perceptions,  thoughts  and  emotions.  The  space  and  awareness  this  opens  up  inside  can  completely  change  how  we  are  with  ourselves  and  everybody  else.  In  circumstances  that  could  previously  have  led  us  to  cause  harm  or  confusion,  it  becomes  possible  to  create  happiness.

Suitable for complete beginners or those wishing to refresh their meditation practice.
(Note: You do not have to have completed Module 1 to join)
