‘Mainly Meditation’ at Kagyu Ling

Have you thought of trying meditation? The next ‘Mainly ‘Meditation’ Morning at Kagyu Ling is on Saturday 21 September 2019, so why not come along? All are welcome, whether you’re new to meditation or have some experience.

‘Mainly Meditation’ Saturdays are now a popular feature of the Kagyu Ling calendar and regularly attract around 15-20 people.

There are two sessions of guided reflection and meditation: 11am to 11.45am and 12.15 to 1pm. 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.

Between meditation sessions there is a chance to chat over tea and biscuits, and the morning concludes with lunch, to which all are invited.

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.

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.

‘Mainly Meditation’ Saturdays will be held throughout 2019 at Kagyu Ling Buddhist Centre, Manchester:   21 September, 26 October, 16 November and 14 December.

Kagyu Ling also runs meditation classes every Wednesday morning 10.30am to 11.30am, and on Wednesday and Friday evenings from 8pm to 9pm. (Please note that due to the summer recess, there are no classes at Kagyu Ling from 17 August to 3 September inclusive.)

In addition, there are meditation classes across the region run by Kagyu Dechen Buddhism North West.
