I am This. Really?

Our friend Padmadasa returns to lead tonight’s meditation night.

The first part of the evening will introduce an in-depth body scan practice, which can offer a more thorough and potentially more revealing approach to mindfulness. The second part will introduce the erasure method, aimed at introducing and revealing something about the awareness into which all of our experiences arise.

Padmadasa will ask us to bring an attitude of openness to the possibility of seeing from other perspectives, and allow our current beliefs of who and what we are to be put aside for a while. In a shared exploration of these two methods he will ask about our experiences arising in response to the meditations, and invite questions to clarify the practices, to help us feel into what may be revealed about our truer self nature.


Broadening and Deepening our Practice

These evenings 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 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.

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
