Going Deeper in Meditation with Maitrilila
Mon 18th Jan : 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
"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.
The Four Divine Abodes
This week’s session will be led by Maitrilila, from Essen, Germany. She says:
This evening, I will give you a short overview of the four Brahmaviharas (Divine Abodes). They are Metta (loving kindness), Karuna (compassion), Mudita (sympathetic joy) and Upekkha (tranquility), the Buddha recommended these practices many times.
I would like to invite you to try out for yourself how you could build a stable foundation of Metta as the basis for the other three Brahmaviharas.
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.
