£20 - £45
man meditating

A friendly and informal day covering the essential aspects of Buddhist meditation, led this time by Mokshajyoti and Silabodhi. The day is suitable for newcomers to meditation as well as for those who have attended shorter sessions here or learned to meditate in other settings.

£50 full rate, £40 mid rate, £20 low rate. Please decide which price fits your circumstances and income..

These one-day courses take place every two or three months and cover similar content to the six-week evening course, although the total class time is of course less. There will be help with finding a comfortable posture; short meditation periods building body and breath awareness; discussions and questions; and pointers for establishing a regular personal meditation practice.

Mindfulness of Breathing

We will particularly focus on the mindfulness of breathing practice today, for developing awareness or mindfulness. Although the day is suitable for complete beginners, it is also appropriate for those who have already learned the Metta Bhavana practice but not the mindfulness of breathing, and for those who have attended taster sessions here.
