The Basics of Meditation
Drop-in Meditation Classes
In Person & Livestreamed Online
Thursdays 6.00pm – 7.00pm
Learn the basics of Buddhist meditation and experience inner peace. Discover what meditation is, how to meditate successfully, and how to start a daily practice that brings lasting results.
Meditation is a method to make our mind peaceful and is also a means to familiarise ourself with positive states of mind and reduce negative mental habits. When our mind is free from mental discomfort, we experience true happiness.
In each class, we will learn practical meditations that we can reproduce ourself at home and practical teachings that can help us to solve our daily problems.
We will discover the immense benefit to ourselves of developing and maintaining a daily meditation practice but also the benefit will be felt by others with whom we share our lives.
“When the turbulence of our distracting thought subsides and our mind becomes still, a deep happiness and contentment naturally arises from within.”
Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche
Debra Batchelor, a student of the Foundation Programme at Burnley Kadampa Buddhist Centre. Debra is known for her warmth and ability to make the teachings very pratical for our busy modern lives.
