How to go Deeper in Meditation, Online with Singhashri
Mon 13th Jul : 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
There are many ways we can work on our mind, but one of the most direct is through meditation. It’s not always clear though how to work with our mind effectively in meditation, or how we can access deeper states of mindfulness. Experienced meditation teachers address these questions, both in theory and practice, during these online evening sessions.
Tonight we are joined by Singhashri, an old friend and very inspiring teacher. The theme is I am because we are – a traditional Ubuntu saying. Singhashri would like the Zoom session to be as interactive as possible, so this one won’t be available to watch on YouTube.
Who is the event for?
It’s suitable for anyone familiar with the two meditation practices we teach here – Mindfulness of Breathing and Metta Bhavana – and with at least six months regular meditation practice.

We all yearn to find and engage with others in spaces of deep meaning and heart-felt belonging, where we are each doing our own work in deep connection with one another. This is the ideal of beloved community. Our dharma practice provides a crucible where we hold the tension between our ideals and what is happening now, which sometimes feels very far from our ideals.
How do we show up for ourselves and others with an attitude of openness and curiosity, willing to see clearly the parts of us that are both longing for freedom and those still in the shadows, confused, or actively resisting change? This question is relevant to both how we work internally and also how we engage in beloved community. It is the ground from which true inclusivity can take root, grow and flourish, creating beloved community from the inside out.
