Samatha Beginners' Class
Samatha is a form of meditation practice which applies ones attention on the breath in order to learn how to cultivate both calm and mindfulness. The breath is said to be a meditation object which is suitable for all. As the practice develops one observes how the mind operates and investigates techniques to bring about greater calm and mindfulness. Both on the “cushion” and in daily life.
Samatha beginners’ classes give a systematic introduction to this meditation and mindfulness practice. Gradually introducing the theory underpinning the practice, which aids the investigation. Threaded through this is the exploration of Metta (Universal Friendliness) Meditation
This is a structured course which enables people to gradually build up their practice. Meditation is individual to each meditator, and keeps on developing and deepening over time, so guidance and discussion are provided not only in the group, but also encouraged on a one-to-one basis.
There are lots of chairs, but if you prefer sitting on the floor please bring a cushion if you need one.
