Going Deeper in Meditation Online: Contacting our Boundless Heart – Part Two

Mon 4th Jan : 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Virtual Event
Man Kneeling and Smiling

"The Monday night classes are such an important and helpful addition to sangha life"

An opportunity to come together and practice, with a focus on deepening meditation. Each week, as a community, we’ll be exploring different aspects and approaches to our meditation practice with input, a led meditation and small group discussions too.

Contacting our Boundless Heart

This week’s session will be led by Vidyapala. He’ll be continuing the theme from his Going Deeper in Meditation class on 21st December. He says:

All people have the ability to be kind. We practice kindness in lots of ways every day of our lives. And yet, when we sit down to practice the Metta Bhavana meditation, we can often feel like there is not much there and we strain to make something happen. This is not helpful. Over the course of the evening, I’d like to offer some different ways of thinking about and practicing the Metta Bhavana. Ways that allow us to contact the kindness that I believe is already in us and then share this kindness out to more and more beings.


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.

Each evening will vary, but you can expect periods of meditation with short talks and discussion – sometimes in small groups – and a ten-minute break around the mid-point.

Supporting the Centre

We want to offer as much as we can freely online for as long as can. These are very difficult times for us though, and being mostly closed for so long means we have lost much of our income: we need your help! So if you value our Centre and community, please think about making a regular or one-off donation here.
