Learn to Meditate
with Lee Howson
Our four week Learn to Meditate foundation course provides a complete introduction to mindfulness meditation. It is taught by trained and experienced instructors in our large and well equipped meditation room.
Mindfulness meditation provides many benefits – it develops the qualities of stability, clarity and strength of mind. It allows us to live more mindfully and so improves confidence and concentration, and enables us to handle stress better. The Learn to Meditate course will provide tools and practical advice for developing your own mindfulness meditation practice.
Each of the four classes will involve guided meditation instruction, meditation practice, mindful activities and discussion. The course is interactive and communal – we aim to create a learning environment where the instructions become experiential and directly relevant.
Class 1 – Mindfulness Meditation - How and Why: Establishing the core principles for the practice of meditation
Class 2 – Mindfulness and Awareness: What they are, and how they work together
Class 3 – Challenges and solutions: Difficulties that arise and how to work with them – challenges faced getting to the meditation cushion, challenges faced on the cushion
Class 4 – Meditation in Everyday Life: Making a path out of your practice and connecting what you have learned and experienced to your everyday life situations and events. Living a more mindful life.
Learn to meditate is for anyone who is new to mindfulness meditation, or would like to reconnect with and further develop their meditation practice.
