|Meditation provides a way to help you relax, become more focused, develop your relationships, understand yourself better and become wiser and more compassionate. The two meditations introduced in this course are based on those taught by the Buddha to help his followers towards Enlightenment and are the mindfulness of breathing and development of loving-kindness (metta bhavana) meditations.|
There are five sessions plus a meditation practice day to help you take your practice deeper. The sessions usually consist of instruction in meditation; short meditations; semi-formal presentations by the leader(s); discussion time for participants to relate the material to their own experience; and experiential workshop aspects.
For the duration of the course, you are encouraged to take up a daily meditation practice of 30 minutes per day. To help with home practice, recordings of both mediation practices are made available on line, diaries and handouts are given out.
Meditation practice day is on Saturday 27th May 10am-4pm, please bring vegetarian food for a shared lunch.
