Meditation made easy online course
SATURDAY 3 OCTOBER
available online online as a 2 session course. If you miss it you can watch it in the next 72 hours after it goes live.
The most simple, easiest instruction you could give a human being is this: sit down, relax and breathe.
This is exactly how we begin to meditate. And we all know what happens. The most simple thing quickly becomes incredibly complicated. What should be so easy becomes very difficult. Our mind just goes everywhere. It just will not do what we want it to: it seems to have a life of its own. We might be smiling and serene on the outside but on the inside we are doing our Tesco shopping, dreaming of next year’s holiday, having a mental chat or finishing off an argument from 2016. We have all been there!
The danger is we can come to two wrong conclusions: meditation doesn’t work or I can’t meditate. We can really miss out on finding reliable peace of mind and happiness in our lives and different ways of solving our daily problems. How sad would that be?
If we get the basics wrong, or neglect them, we can “meditate” for years and make little progress. But if we get the basics right, then what follows becomes easier, simpler and results come quickly. We get the confidence that good meditation brings, we become happier and more secure in ourselves.
In these two classes we will learn the essential inner skills to become an effective meditator and we have the opportunity to practise using them in some guided meditation.
The classes are suitable for beginners and also experienced meditators who wish to get back to basics or refresh their meditation tools.
