Going Deeper in Meditation Online with Mahasraddha
Mon 23rd Aug : 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
These evenings are an opportunity to come together and practise, with a focus on deepening meditation - online for the foreseeable future. Each week, as a community, we explore different aspects and approaches to our meditation practice. The structure varies 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. On 4th and 11th October, Going Deeper is replaced by other events - see What's On. Tonight Mahasraddha leads a session originally scheduled for 9th August.
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.
Mahasraddha on Exploring the Mind:
When we think of exploration, we may think of exploring a neighbourhood, a town, a city; we may even think of space exploration. But, as Buddhist practitioners and meditators, our primary exploration is that of the mind. Through this exploration, our understanding and seeing of mind deepens and with it, liberation from the constricting poisons of greed, hatred and delusion. A key tool in this exploration of mind is the quality of one-pointed concentration, at least initially as we settle into absorption. Through guided meditation, we will be exploring this key quality: developing it, experiencing it, and seeing its potential and importance in spiritual life.
