Beginning Meditation – Starts Sunday 28th FEBRUARY
How do I meditate? Will I be able to? And, what’s the point?? In Beginning Meditation we will answer these questions – and all the others that arise – giving you a solid foothold in your own meditation practice. Over 4 weeks, we will use instruction, discussion, and shared practice to explore this ancient practice and establish its relevance in our modern lives. We are also including bonus recordings for use over the 4 weeks to support you establishing a consistent practice. The course instructor, Mary, has been practicing and studying meditation for over a decade, has been on several meditation retreats in Vipassana and Zen traditions, and – more importantly in her opinion – has made the practice relevant to her, using meditation as an anchor to help her navigate the natural fluctuations of her life. She designed this course to give you the tools and experience to do the same.
Week 1 – What is meditation?
Week 2 – Monkey Mind!
Week 3 – Metta Meditation
Week 4 – Integration and other ways to practice
