Introduction to Buddhist Meditation (Evening course)
Thu, 2 Mar 2017, 19:30 – Thu, 6 Apr 2017, 21:30 GMT
On this six week course we will introduce two meditation practices, one in which we focus on the breath to help develop more concentration, mindfulness and calm and the other in which we evoke 'positive emotions', such as warmth, confidence and care for ourselves and others. As well as practising the methods themselves we will also be discussing the principles involved, such as the practice of mindfulness on and off the cushion; posture and body awareness; specific focus and broader observation of our experience; balancing effort with relaxation and the role of imagination in encouraging healthier emotions. No prior knowledge is required.
