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 Newry Samatha Meditation Group meets on Monday night at 7.00pm (doors open at 6.30pm). The venue for the group is in the 'Profile Health and Beauty Clinic', Unit 8 Ashtree Enterprise Park, Rathfriland Road, Newry BT34 1BY. If you need more detailed directions just let me know.
For more information about the group, please contact Stephen McClelland < firstname.lastname@example.org> P: 07971914763.
The group is a beginners group and is open to anyone to come alone to at any time. There is no charge for the teachings, but people can make a small donation to help cover the costs etc.
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 Stephen. All Welcome
