Going Deeper in Meditation Online with Vidyapala

Mon 2nd Aug : 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Virtual Event Virtual Event
Vidyapala: Man teaching meditation

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.

Vidyapala joins us tonight to lead the second of two evenings on A Different Kind of Knowing. Come to either or both.

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.

A Different Kind of Knowing

When we tell someone that we feel connected to them, we trust them, or even that we love them, we are stating something that we know to be true, for us, in that moment. Likewise, when we are moved by the beauty of a sunset and are reminded of the fragility and preciousness of our short human lives, we are also knowing something. However, in this way of knowing, we are not simply seeing discrete hard facts about the world, we are perceiving the world as a meaningful whole. It’s this kind of intuitive, imaginative knowing that we can develop in meditation. Over the two evenings, I’d like to explore some imaginative methods to develop this different kind of knowing.

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.
