Meditations for finding greater ease and well-being within ourselves

2020 was a tumultuous year.  We don’t know exactly what the new year will bring but, whatever happens, we can benefit greatly from exploring ways to reduce anxiety and the stresses and strain that challenging circumstances can often bring.  This online gathering is an opportunity to come together and move forward with greater hope and confidence.

Buddhist meditations include a rich array of methods to find peace and ease within ourselves.  As we engage in these practices and as our anxieties begin to melt away, there is a sense of coming home to ourselves as we settle in our body and mind.  As we familiarise ourselves with this way of being, we feel more centred and grounded, more comfortable with ourselves, joy arises more readily, and a natural sense of well-being begins to pervade.

In this online event, Andrew will guide us in meditations for calming the mind and for cultivating loving kindness and compassion. There will also be the opportunity for discussion including in breakout groups.

Suitable for beginners as well as those with more experience in meditation.

 

Andrew Warr has had a regular meditation practice for 45 years and has been studying and practicing Buddhist meditation since 1982. He has been teaching meditation for over 30 years and since 2001 has been leading courses, seminars, and retreats, principally on the subject of loving kindness, in Europe, Australia and North America. With great clarity, warmth and humour, Andrew skilfully guides people through the teachings and practices, and shows how these can be applied to our everyday life.
