‘Mainly Meditation’ Saturday at Kagyu Ling

Mainly MeditationThe new year sees the launch of ‘Mainly Meditation’ Saturdays at Kagyu Ling – a chance to find some quiet space and time and learn the simple techniques of calm-abiding meditation. All are welcome, whether you’re new to meditation and Buddhism, or already have some experience. So why not come along to the first session on 26 January and give it a try?

There will be two sessions of guided reflection and meditation: 11am to 11.45am and 12 noon to 12.45pm. You’ll be given a clear explanation of the simple technique of calm-abiding meditation, along with a short introduction to some of the key teachings of Buddhism.

In calm-abiding meditation, we remain in the present moment, relaxed and attentive, and connect with our natural awareness. Once you have learned the technique, you can practise it yourself at home.

People with a serious interest in Buddhism, or who have already taken refuge, are invited to start the day at 10am, with the 16 Arhats puja.

The day concludes with a simple vegetarian lunch at 1pm, to which all are invited.

There is no need to book a place in advance – just come along at 11am, or 10am if you wish to join in the puja. The suggested contribution is £3. Further ‘Mainly Meditation’ Saturdays will be held at Kagyu Ling Buddhist Centre, Manchester on 16 February and 23 March 2019. If you can’t make any of these dates, why not try one of the other meditation classes in the region run by Kagyu Dechen Buddhism North West?
