An introduction to meditation
Sundays 16, 23 and 30 April and 7 May 2023
The Buddha encourages us to experience meditation for ourselves.
We can read books on meditation, listen to talks on meditation, read all the science and studies done on meditation, but if we don’t practice, there’s very little value to all of it.
During our 4 weeks together, we will experience different meditation techniques, from the Buddhist and yogic traditions. This is a secular course, so we are not going into religious concepts. You don’t have to become a Buddhist to meditate and to experience the benefits of meditation!
Some of the meditation techniques we will learn and experience are:
loving kindness meditation
After this course you will:
know what is meditation and it’s aim
understand the many benefits of meditation
have tried different techniques and find the one that fits you
know how to set your space, posture and how to create and sustain a meditation practice
