Introduction to Meditation Course

Thursday 12th May 2022
7:00pm - 9:15pm

Led by Prasannadeva

A Five-Week Introduction to Mindfulness and Loving-Kindness Meditation Course, both in-person and online.

Meditation is a means of transforming the mind. It helps us change the way we relate to ourselves and the world around us.

On this course we teach two meditation techniques, which consist of simple but effective practices drawn from the Buddhist tradition and originally taught by the Buddha himself.

Over the five weeks, you’ll learn:

  1. Meditation & Mindfulness
    • What is Meditation?
    • Introduction to Mindfulness
    • Meditation Posture
    • The Mindfulness of Breathing
  2. Exploring Aspects of Mindfulness
  3. The Development of Loving-Kindness
  4. Working with the Mind: Distraction and Absorption
  5. Taking Meditation into the World
    • Mindfulness and Loving-Kindness off the Cushion
    • Continuing your Practice after the Course

They complement each other and can be learned by anyone, and you don’t have to be a Buddhist to benefit from them!

For more on meditation, mindfulness and loving-kindness, see our meditation page.

Suitable for: Anyone with an interest in Mindfulness or Buddhism.

This course is offered both as an in-person and online course. While all of our events are offered on a donation basis, to attend our courses in-person we ask for a deposit of €30 to secure a place as space is limited. To attend the course online, no deposit is required but we encourage you to make a donation to the DBC.
