Meditations for Enlightenment

In-depth meditation classes

Meditation is becoming increasingly recognised as an effective means to reduce stress and improve our quality of life, however it also has much deeper and far-reaching benefits that have been understood by Buddhist practitioners for thousands of years.

These classes follow a cycle of 21 profound objects of meditation that form the Buddhist path to ultimate happiness. Each week will explore a different meditation and show how adopting this outlook can lead to deeper and deeper levels of happiness. The teachings will be based on The New Meditation Handbook, which is the perfect companion for those attending the classes. Each week is self-contained but runs according to the cycle of 21 meditations. The class contains 2 guided meditations, brief chanted prayers, a short talk introducing the object for contemplation and practical advice on how to carry the instruction into our daily life.
