“The practice of meditation is not so much about a hypothetical attainment of enlightenment as about leading a good life. In order to learn how to lead a good life, a spotless life, we need continual awareness that relates with life constantly, directly, and very simply.” – Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, from The Truth of Suffering and the Path of Liberation.

These practices are a combination of samatha (“calm abiding”) and vipassana (“insight”). Structurally, they are similar to the zazen/kinhin practices, but without the Zen aspects.

Each practice will start with a short introduction featuring some words of guidance from recognised teachers. This will be followed by practice, including both sitting and walking meditation, with only occasional reminders to restore focus.

Classes take place on 13th, 20th and 27th January, 17th and 24th February and 3rd March. There are no classes on 3rd and 10th Feb due to a private retreat at the centre.

Classes are suitable for newcomers as well as experienced practitioners. Entry is free, with dana for the centre gratefully accepted.
