Meditation Essentials Course

A Five-Week Introduction to Mindfulness
and Loving-Kindness Meditation Course

Starts Wednesday 24th July 2024, 7.15pm – 9.30pm

Led by Sadayasihi

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 were originally taught by the Buddha himself. 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.

Over the five weeks we will cover:

  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
