The class on Tuesday 6th February is cancelled. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.

with Kerry Prest

Tuesdays, 2.30pm-3.30pm, 9 January to 6 February

What exactly is meditation? Why do we spend so much time watching our breath, or analysing the nature of the mind, or reality? These questions and more will all be answered in the five session exploring the different types of meditation, the benefits of meditation and its functions, whilst practising some of the different types of meditation in each session. There will also be the opportunity to learn how to meditate on the nature of the mind itself!
We’ll also be looking at some of the advice in Ven. Sangye Khadro’s bestselling book “How to Meditate” to prepare for a talk given by the author herself on a Wednesday 7th February at the finish of the course.
Each session is stand alone, so you can drop in or attend all five sessions for a comprehensive overview of what is meditation.

Suggested donation £6 per session.
