Tuesday night offers three week meditation courses with Resident Teacher Gen Drolkyi.  As well as learning basic meditation techniques, these courses give you the opportunity to learn about particular aspects of Buddhist thought and their practical application in daily life. You can attend a full course to receive most benefit or you can just drop in to single classes.

LIVING IN THE MOMENT

26 MAR, 2 APR, 9 APR
How much energy do you put into the present?
Instead of being present and discovering the beauty and fullness of the moment, we seem to spend an inordinate amount of time dwelling in the past or worrying about the future.
Even while we are doing things we like, our mind is never in the present – we are constantly making plans for the future, worrying about what might happen next, and never really feeling content.
On this 3-week course, we will learn meditations to help us let go of this limiting mental habit. We will find out:
• How to make the most of every moment of our life
• To experience the fulfilment that comes from using each moment meaningfully
• To stop constantly distracting ourselves from what is going on right under our noses!

About the Classes

Buddhist meditation is extensive and by coming along to these classes you will learn basic breathing meditation and gain insight into the topics presented in How to Understand the Mind.

All the topics are presented in a practical way so that you can understand how to use the knowledge gained in meditation to help improve your state of mind and quality of life.

The methods taught are based on Buddha’s teachings on the mind but can be practised by anyone, Buddhist or not.

There are no physical exercises or special postures involved. Participants sit on chairs to meditate.

These classes are suitable for those who have been attending meditation classes and have some background understanding of Buddhism.
