WHAT MEDITATION REALLY IS :
A complete introduction to meditation: bringing together over 2,000 years of Buddhist wisdom in a way that is authentic, accessible and relevant to modern life .
We all want to be happy. But often the relentless pace and challenges of life make it impossible to know where to look for happiness.
Through the wisdom of meditation, however, we can find peace and contentment. To our amazement, we discover a profound stillness that is always with us, beneath the turbulence of all our thoughts and emotions. When we allow our mind to settle, quietly, in its own natural peace, then what happens is quite extraordinary. This unique course has been specially developed by Sogyal Rinpoche after many years of teaching in the West. It brings together over 2,000 years of Buddhist wisdom and experience in a way that is authentic, accessible and completely relevant to modern life.
Led by experienced meditators, it offers a complete introduction to meditation and shows how we can begin to uncover the natural peace, wisdom and compassion that lies within us.
Students will gain a genuine experience of meditation and all the tools they need to take the benefits into every aspect of their life.
Module 1: Introducing What Meditation Really is (23 February-23 March 2017):
Meditation is a process of getting to know your own mind. This module provides everything we need to start meditation and begin exploring the many possibilities it can open up.
Module 2: Using our Senses, Thoughts and Emotions as a Support (30 March-4 May 2017)
This module shows us how to use our senses, thoughts and emotions as a support for our meditation. The space and awareness this opens up inside can completely change how we are with ourselves and everybody else.
We look forward to welcoming you on this new course.
Next Open Day: dates to be confirmed
A number of open days take place throughout the year. This is an opportunity for anyone who wishes to explore the Wisdom and Compassion of the Buddhist teachings. There will be special emphasis on doing Meditation practice and learning what it means to work with our minds.
Everyone is welcome, and no previous experience is necessary.
