7 Sundays on How to Meditate

If you register online for the 7 teaching sessions of the “Discovering Buddhism How to Meditate” module, you will be provided with the printed material.

Shamatha & Vipashyana 2 Day Easter Retreat

The two-day meditation retreat focuses on developing shamatha or “calm abiding” meditation and vipashyana or “higher seeing” meditation and then combining the two. The focus is on bringing about a profound shift in our perspective, cultivating insights into the reality of how things exist. This helps us to overcome the misconceptions and misperceptions that create all the sufferings and problems we experience in life. Participation in this retreat fulfils the Discovering Buddhism How to Meditate practice component.

During the “retreat”, there will be breaks between sessions with free tea and coffee.
Bring Your Own lunch on each “retreat” day.
