BOOKING ESSENTIAL as spaces are limited
Starts Tuesday 17th September 2019: 7pm-9.30pm
Please note that on 1st October there is no class, so we skip a week.
This 6-week course will introduce the essential ideas that support transformative Buddhist practice – we are not offering a little gentle relaxation, but will be concerned with existential matters in a practical way. As part of that, 2 traditional meditation practices will be taught. No previous experience is necessary.
Week 1: explore 3 crucial ideas; learn meditation posture and some mindfulness of breathing
Week 2: explore how we change; more mindfulness of breathing and ‘just sitting’ practice
Week 3: explore principles of behaviour; learn ‘loving-kindness’ meditation
Week 4: explore the nature of Buddhist ethics; more ‘loving-kindness’ meditation
Week 5: explore meditation more fully and where it fits in
Week 6: explore the 3 core truths of Buddhism
