‘Mainly Meditation’ at Kagyu Ling

Kagyu Ling’s next ‘Mainly ‘Meditation’ Saturday will be on 1 June. Why not put the date in your diary and come along?

‘Mainly Meditation’ Saturdays are proving popular with people who are new to meditation, as well as with those who regularly practise. Around 15-20 people come along and enjoy some quiet space and time. Between sessions there is a chance to chat over tea and biscuits, and the morning concludes with lunch, to which all are invited.

All are welcome, whether you’re new to meditation and Buddhism, or already have some experience.

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.

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:  1 June, 13 July, 10 August, 21 September, 26 October, 16 November and 14 December.

Kagyu Ling also runs meditation classes on every Wednesday morning 10.30am to 11.30am, and on Wednesday and Friday evenings from 8pm to 9pm. In addition, there are meditation classes across the region run by Kagyu Dechen Buddhism North West.
