Meditation: Foundation Day Course

Sat 11th Jan, 2020 : 10:30 am - 4:30 pm

£25 – £45
Tealights

A friendly and informal day covering the essential aspects of Buddhist meditation. The day is suitable for newcomers to meditation as well as for those who have attended shorter sessions here or learned to meditate in other settings.

These one-day courses take place every few weeks and cover similar content to the six-week meditation foundation evening course, although the total class time is of course less. There will be help with finding a comfortable posture; short meditation periods building body and breath awareness; discussions and questions; and pointers for establishing a regular personal meditation practice.

Prices

The price for the day is £45 standard rate / £30 concessionary / £25 age 18 - 25. Payment still a problem? As a small unfunded charity, the Centre relies on the generosity of people who come here, but we don't want to turn anyone away from our courses. Please contact the Centre Team on 0161 834 9232 or info@manchesterbuddhistcentre.org.uk and we'll work something out with you.

Mindfulness of Breathing

We will particularly focus on the mindfulness of breathing practice today, for developing mindfulness, calm, tranquillity and stillness.
