Mainly meditation at Kagyu Ling

The popular ‘Mainly Meditation’ mornings are continuing over the winter at Kagyu Ling,  so why not come along?

The next Mainly Meditation morning is on Saturday 14 December 2019.

All are welcome, whether you’re new to meditation or 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.

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.

The first Mainly Meditation morning of 2020 will be on 18 January.

Kagyu Ling also runs meditation classes 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.
