Buddhist meditation promotes a state of calm-alertness and helps to cultivate compassion for ourselves and others. It is a valuable tool for identifying and realizing our potential and our place in the world. A regular meditation practice provides the clarity and perspective necessary to discover purpose and create personal change. It’s easy to learn to meditate.
In this course, you will learn two traditional meditation methods: Mindfulness of Breathing and Metta Bhavana (Development of Lovingkindness). We provide clear, practical instruction for anyone wishing to establish an effective meditation practice. No previous experience is necessary.
Buddhism is a path of transformation, leading to Enlightenment. The Triratna Buddhist Community is dedicated to creating the conditions for such practice in the modern world. The Buddhist tradition has bequeathed a vast range of practices, and Triratna seeks to draw carefully and pragmatically on this huge spiritual reservoir, offering a systematic and coherent approach to Buddhist practice. We offer a four-week introduction from 8-9pm, open to those on the meditation course at no charge.
|Cost: sliding scale $40||For the four week course|
|Pay in Advance $35||For the four week course|
This class is for people with experience of meditation.
Sangha Night also on Tuesday also at Hope Martin Studio is a weekly class open to all that provides regular support for anyone who has an established Buddhist practice. Sangha is the Buddhist word for spiritual community. Each week begins with a meditation, followed by a talk or other program. The emphasis is on practical application of Buddhist principles in our own lives. Meditators with some experience are also welcome to drop-in for just the meditation at 7:30pm.
Suggested donation: $10
