Discovering Buddhism Ven Chokyi

About Event:

“Meditation is the way we realise the nature of the mind.” (Lama Yeshe)

Meditation has many benefits for both the body and mind. It encompasses a variety of techniques that aim to develop mindfulness, tranquility, and insight. It is an essential component of the Buddhist path to mental well-being and lasting happiness.

In this teaching weekend of the second Discovering Buddhism module, you will learn about the benefits of meditation, the different types of meditation, how to sit properly, how to set up a meditation session, and how to recognise and deal with obstacles that may arise. The weekend includes teachings, meditation sessions, and time for questions and discussion. If you have ever wanted to learn to meditate, this is the course for you!

This is the first part of Module 2 of the Discovering Buddhism program. The second part is a practice weekend on the topic one month later, the second weekend of July.

Accommodation and meals available separately.

This Module will continue on the second weekend of the following month, the second weekend of July.
