General mindfulness class
1st and 3rd Sundays, 7pm – 8.30pm (£7 drop in, series pass discounts available)
A place for like minded people to come together and study the art of meditation. Meditation is an art form and like any skill, time is needed to gain mastery. The untrained mind is said to be like a naughty monkey, swinging from tree to tree; but with a bit of skill and a whole lot of patience the mind will begin to settle and insight will grow. Developing a broad, non-judgmental continuous awareness, learning how to work skilfully with difficult emotions and developing positive mind states such as compassion and equanimity.
Buddhist meditation and study group
2nd and 4th Sundays, 7pm – 8.30pm (£7 drop in, series pass discounts available)
This group looks at the more traditional Buddhist meditation styles of Vipassana and Samatha. We also delve into scriptural study, chanting and mantra, as well as Buddhist ethics and how they can be applied to modern life. Sessions are light hearted and include lots of traditional stories and poems.
