“It’s extraordinarily powerful that we decide just to sit, not hangout or perch, but just sit on a meditation cushion. Such a brave attitude, such a wonderful commitment is magnificent. It is very sane, extraordinarily sane.” – Chogyam Trungpa 

 

It is recommended that students have prior meditation experience.

This weekend of sitting practice offers us the opportunity to deepen our relationship with the simple yet profound practice of shamatha meditation. 

In these times of speed, deadlines, and subtle aggression, we benefit greatly from allowing our minds and hearts to rest and settle during extended practice sessions.

The weekend is offered as four sessions. Participants are welcome to attend as many or as few as they wish. We do ask that, where possible, you aim to arrive in time and stay for the duration of a given sitting, in order to minimise disturbance for all.

Saturday
10:00am – 12:30pm
2:00pm – 4:30pm

Sunday
10:00am – 12:30pm
2:00pm – 4:30pm

No need to register - just turn up. There is a suggested donation of £10 per session, although we invite contributions on a dana basis – i.e. we are grateful to receive whatever amount you feel able to offer.
