4 weeks: Monday 25 January to 15 February 2021
The group meets once a week on a Monday morning from 8.30am – 9.45am (UK time) using the Zoom platform.
Meditation could simply be described as the experience of attending to what is present.
We set time aside to open with curiosity to the grace which sits close to the surface of our experience. We might imagine that meditation transforms us into a better version of ourselves. But this is not the case, it is more simple than that. Our willingness to sit with silence is met by an abundance of what already is.
The course acknowledges that meditation is an embodied experience. It covers the fundamentals of how posture, sensation and the presence of our breath helps to settle us into the spacious quietness of plenitude. And quite naturally there is more; as the benevolence which is inherent comes to the fore and is the place for all that moves as us.
This friendly course takes place within the support of a small group, which includes the opportunity to share conversations about the joys and challenges of our practices. It is suitable for everyone, whether you are new to meditation or whether you want to deepen and sustain an existing practice.
It is asked of attendees that you come to all four weeks of the course.
