A six week meditation course for beginners
6 Saturdays, 10.30am -12.30pm starts Saturday 13 June
Led by Bodhilila
Meditation has been proven to have many beneficial effects on our health and wellbeing, including reducing stress, increasing emotional resilience and helping us to respond more creatively to challenges and difficult experiences. Meditation offers a way to resource ourselves and to become more grounded and calm while developing kindness and care towards others and ourselves. Meditation is more than a tool or technique, and practising meditation can have a very positive influence on how we live our lives.
There will be four meditation practices taught on this course: the Body Scan, the Mindfulness of Breathing, the Metta Bhavana (a kindness and compassion practice) and Just Sitting. As well as exploring underlying principles and approaches to meditation, there will be guidance on posture and on setting up a meditation practice. The course will include opportunities to practise together and to learn from shared experience.
