Going Deeper in Meditation with Maitrilila

Mon 18th Jan : 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Virtual Event
Heart on Wall

"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.

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.
