PRACTICAL BUDDHIST SOLUTIONS FOR MODERN LIVING

Attending our classes: What to expect


  • Classes are suitable for both complete beginners and those who already have experience of meditation.
  • Sessions begin with a simple guided meditation to help stop distracting thoughts and calm the mind.
  • This is followed by a talk on a specific topic relevant to daily life and another guided meditation based on the talk.
  • Seating is in chairs but you are welcome to sit on a cushion if you prefer.
  • Classes are self contained so you can come to a whole course or just drop in when you can.
  • No need to book.

“Normally we divide the external world into that which we consider to be good or valuable, bad or worthless, or neither. Most of the time these discriminations are incorrect or have little meaning. For example, our habitual way of categorizing people as friends, enemies, and strangers depending on how they make us feel is both incorrect and a great obstacle to developing impartial love for all living beings. Rather than holding so tightly to our discriminations of the external world, it would be much more beneficial if we learned to discriminate between valuable and worthless states of mind.”
