Introduction to Meditation is scheduled on the first Monday of the month. It’s open to anyone who is interested to begin a meditation practice and to join our weekly Shamatha meditation when we put these skills into practice.
WHEN: Monday, 18.00 – 18.45
LEVEL: All levels, beginners welcome
Once a month, we offer this introduction to mediation for those curious about what meditation is and is not. Instructions on Shamatha meditation will be taught in this short 45 minutes together.
When you achieve shamatha one result is incredible mental pliancy. Your mind follows your wishes and focuses wherever you like for as long as you like. – Geshe Lhundub Sopa
Shamatha means ‘to abide in peace’. It is the practice of tranquillity or stabilizing meditation – a method of allowing the mind to be more focused, calm and relaxed. You will notice that meditating in a group has a great effect on your energy and concentration. It will also help you motivate yourself to carve out this special time in the week just for you and your mind.
Registration is required as this short introduction is offered based on demand and supporting material will be emailed to you. Registration is closed on Sunday midnight.
Participating in our weekly Monday Shamatha mediation (19:00 – 20:00) is open without registration. Same zoom link is used.
