How to go Deeper in Meditation, Online with Garavachitta
Mon 21st Sep : 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
“The Monday night classes are such an important and helpful addition to sangha life. At the end of a busy Monday I’m often frazzled, but the experience of sitting back, receiving such fantastic teaching and being guided in new ways to experience and work with my mind is so refreshing. Thanks so much”
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. This week, Garavachitta leads us in an evening Meditating on Dependent Origination. Sorry, no session on 28th September.
This evening I will introduce the Buddha’s teaching on how our present experience arises on the basis of a preceding condition. This is not as complex or abstract as it sounds and can be approached in a grounded practical way with whatever is happening with us at the time. Its purpose is to begin to liberate us from identifying with the causes of suffering. It is really just a way to let go more deeply by observing what is really going on in our experience. You don’t need to bring anything, apart from your curiosity.
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.
