An introduction to meditation in the Samatha tradition (Samatha means calm / tranquility)
Samatha meditation practice is about mindfulness of breathing, which is a simple but powerful technique to promote calm and well being through the balance of present moment awareness and concentration. It is an effective but gentle way of training the mind to generate stillness and peace.
The Belfast Samatha Meditation Group has moved to Belfast Tai Chi School, 119a Woodstock Road, Belfast BT6 8AB.
Classes will run every Wednesday from 28th Oct 2015.
Doors open from 7pm but all are asked to arrive before 7.30pm for a 7.45pm start.
The group is a beginners group and is open for anyone to come along to at any time throughout the year. There is no charge for the teaching, but a small donation to help cover costs is appreciated. Cushions and chairs will be available.
The benefits of meditation are many and vary from person to person depending on their background, interests and needs. If you have any questions or need more information about the group or meditation please contact Iain by:
