CANCELLED: Meditation: Foundation Day Course

Sat 16th May : 10:30 am - 4:30 pm

An eye
The Coronavirus outbreak means Manchester Buddhist Centre is now closed to the public until at least 30th June. We will, of course, update you as more advice is given. If you are currently booked on a course or event which falls during this closure period, we will be contacting you by email to discuss your options.

Sharing our Practice

Practising mindfulness and loving-kindness during times of crisis is ultimately what supports us all to stay emotionally positive and to grow. We are therefore committed to continuing to share our teachings and practices with you during this challenging period. We are taking some of our classes and courses online, so please sign up to our mailing list and check our website regularly. During this period we'll be responding to emails at info@manchesterbuddhistcentre.org.uk but we won't be answering phone calls. The Buddha taught that we are deeply interconnected in seen and unseen ways. This virus has affected us all and we as a community continue to send our well-wishing and care to all those throughout the world who have been severely affected by the virus.

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.
