Time to Meditate

‘Time to Meditate’ is not a course with a weekly commitment to attend, but an opportunity and space just to sit and practice meditation together within a group. These sessions are best suited to those with previous experience of meditation.
Every second week we will include a guided loving kindness meditation.
No booking necessary. There is no fee, optional donation welcome.
What Meditation Really Is – Module 4
Thursdays 7.30pm – 9.00pm
October 12th – November 9th 2017
This five-session module is the fourth in a series of modules called What Meditation Really Is.
Module Four builds on the three modules that precede it, and focuses on the topic of loving
kindness meditation practice.
Our practice is most powerful and beneficial when we enter into it with the
attitude of wanting to help others. In this module we look at how to form a
solid foundation for our practice by using love as the object of our meditation.
Unfortunately, many people nowadays suffer from the unresolved emotional
wounds they carry with them, from a lack of confidence and self-esteem.
Although you could say that the qualities of loving kindness and compassion
are implicit in all forms of meditation, loving kindness practice was
developed for the explicit purpose of overcoming fear through love. The
practice reveals the limitless wealth of naturally arising unconditional love
that lies at the heart of each and every one of us. Through opening to this
internal source of genuine goodness, we learn how to love ourselves in a
healthy, healing way that transforms our intention towards others. We cease
to operate from a basis of fear or sadness and let love become our motivation.
