Going Deeper in Meditation Online with Maitridevi

Mon 19th Jul : 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Virtual Event Virtual Event
Maitridevi

These sessions are an opportunity to come together and practise, with a focus on deepening meditation. Each week, as a community, we explore different aspects and approaches to our meditation practice. The evenings 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. Going Deeper is staying online for the foreseeable future.

Tonight we are joined by our old friend Maitridevi from Taraloka women’s retreat centre.

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.

About Maitridevi

I’ve both attended and led many total immersion retreats at Taraloka, Buddhafield and Dhanakosa. I love to weave myth and nature into the Dharma and my interests are in working with the body, the heart, and the imagination in playful and experimental ways. For many years now I’ve had a deep love of meditation, and intensive meditation retreats but it wasn’t always that way! For my first retreat at Taraloka in 1991 I chose a work retreat as the thought of lots of meditation was far too daunting. My favourite retreats now involve nature, silence, meditating outdoors and poetry.

Supporting the Centre

We want to offer as much as we can freely online for as long as we 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.
