Doing Something that Works – Intro to Meditation Course

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

Starts Wednesday 19th May 2021
7pm – 9pm each week
Led by Rijumuni and Prajnamayi

Meditation Course Image

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 the Mindfulness of Breathing and the Development of Loving Kindness meditation practices.

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

Who Hates the Metta Bhavana? Meditation Course

A Five-Week Online Meditation Course

Starts Tuesday 25th May 2021
7pm – 9pm each week
Led by Jnanadhara

Meditation Course Image

In this course, we’ll explore how to creatively and effectively transform hatred into love through the Metta Bhavana, a profoundly potent but frequently misunderstood meditation.

If you struggle with the Metta Bhavana, or if you love the practice and want to deepen your understanding and practice of it, this course will offer new insights and approaches.
