There are said to be two main reasons for practising meditation: to appreciate the richness and value of life and to have no regrets when we die. The wonder and colour of everyday experience can be opened up to us by increasing our awareness through meditation. How we go about this on this weekend will be through breathing meditations and also visualisations. Simplicity will be the essence.
Through these exercises we can renew our perception of the world we live in, finding fulfilment and restoring our sense of balance that is too easily lost in this busy changing world.Â We will investigate experientially the seven core attitudes of a good meditation practitioner.
Above all, we will try to experience meditation in the environment of Samye Ling and then go on to take that experience home with us for our own benefit and those of all around us.
The course will begin atÂ 7pmÂ on Friday 28thÂ April and end atÂ 5.30pmÂ on Monday 1stÂ May.
There is no charge for this course though donations are welcome and can be made in the Reception Office in Samye Ling.
