Do something that works
Learning mindfulness and universal kindness will change your life. Guaranteed.
You can develop these qualities through tried-and-tested meditation practices taught by the Buddha. Join Sthiradeva, a member of the Triratna Buddhist Order who’s been meditating for over 30 years, to learn how to train your mind in these ways. For newcomers as well as those with some experience of meditation.
Spread over six Tuesdays, this course will involve real-time instruction in two core meditation practices (mindfulness of breathing and the development of universal loving-kindness), opportunities to ask questions, and to discuss themes arising from your home practice.
Tuesdays 7.30-9pm GMT on Zoom (link will be sent via email)
Starts 23rd February
By donation (we suggest in the range of £30-100 for the course, depending on your circumstances)

Frequently Asked Questions
How do I access the course?
The course will be run via Zoom and you will receive a link in week before the course starts.
What time shall I login to the sessions?
The leader of the class will arrive at around 7.20pm; from then on feel free to join. For the first session we'd recommend joining soon after 7.20pm to sort out any technical issues and get comfortable.
What if I'm late?
When you join the session your microphone will automatically be muted although your camera will be visible, so provided that you are already sitting and still you should not disturb the class.
Do I need to bring anything with me?
You might want to bring something on which to take notes, although there will be handouts.
How shall I prepare for the course?
Choose (or create) a space in your home which is uncluttered, where you can sit comfortably on an upright chair or meditation cushion, and where you can be quiet and undisturbed. Turn off notifications on your devices. Ideally, give yourself a few minutes as a buffer between activities before the start of the session.
