with Jon Mitchell

Saturday 12 Jan and 9 March, 10.00am to 1.00pm

A morning of guided meditation, discussion and teaching on ‘śamatha’ meditation. Śamatha, or ‘calm abiding’ meditation is a way in which a relaxed, stable and highly focussed state of mind can be developed.

It allows us to bring our best to whatever we are doing, on and off the meditation cushion. We will explore and practice several śamatha techniques in order to start or improve our daily meditation practices.

This session is drop in or book using the button above. Suggested donation £6.

Classes are offered for free at Jamyang Buddhist Centre Leeds so as many people as possible can benefit. We do not get grants and all donations go towards running the Centre. You can donate at the start of a class or online by clicking the link on the right.
