Going Deeper in Meditation Online with Garavachitta

Mon 6th Sep : 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, Garavachitta leads a session on vedana or feeling tone.

Who is the evening 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.


Clarifying Feeling Tone

Vedana – sometimes translated as hedonic tone, or feeling tone – is one of the five skandhas or aspects of what make up our conscious experience. Crucially it is the basis of our experience of pleasure and pain, which also becomes the basis for our reactivity. Vedana is always present in one form or another. Can we clarify its nature, and through knowing it more deeply free ourselves from its mostly unconscious effects on us?

Supporting the Centre

Although we're now back open for four days a week, with some of our classes now back at the Centre, these are still difficult times for us. 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.
