How to go Deeper in Meditation, Online with Mahasraddha

Mon 20th Jul : 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Mahasraddha

There are many ways we can work on our mind, but one of the most direct is through meditation. In these online sessions, experienced meditation teachers look at how we can work with our mind effectively and access deeper states of mindfulness.

Tonight Mahasraddha begins a series of four sessions: Unlocking Treasures of the Mind in the Presence of the Buddha. The remaining sessions will be on 27th July, then 17th and 24th August. We start with equanimity, an all-encompassing, profound stillness of the mind accessible to all, no matter what is going on in our lives. Through the eyes of equanimity, we see and experience the world with a mind more at ease and with greater wisdom and compassion that benefits ourselves and others.

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.

Mahasraddha writes:

Meditation and visualising the Buddha have been a very important part of my life as a dharma practitioner. I relish exploring the infinite heights and depths of the mind through meditation; visualising the Buddha – or Buddanussati – has been an important complementary companion in these explorations.

I’d like to share and explore with you some fruits of the inspiration and creativity that have arisen more recently in my meditation practice. Unlocking Treasures of the Mind in the Presence of the Buddha is an apt description of what’s been going on for me! Each week, we will explore a treasure of the mind through a short talk, a guided meditation and a visualisation of the Buddha. Don’t be put off if you think you can’t visualise!


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 closed 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.
