Meditation online via Zoom

meditation online

If you’d like to try meditation online, join one of our Meditation Zones on Tuesday, Wednesday or  Thursday.

Meditation Zones offer the chance to join in meditation online when it’s not possible to go to a centre. These are open classes. All are welcome – whether you’ve got some experience of meditation or Buddhism, or none at all. Also, you can join online wherever you are.

First, each session gives an explanation of a simple, yet effective, calming meditation practice. After that there is a brief talk on a key aspect of the Buddha’s teachings. The session ends with reflection on the teaching and an opportunity for questions and answers.

The Way of Tibetan Buddhism

If you’d like to know more about meditation and Buddhism, there’s a new series of online sessions starting on 8 December 2020, based on the book ‘The Way of Tibetan Buddhism’ by Lama Jampa Thaye.

The sessions run every Tuesday from 8 December, from 9.45am to 11am,  for nine weeks, using zoom.

Each session starts with calm-abiding meditation. You’ll be given guidance on how to sit and settle the mind.  After that, there will be an audio section of Lama Jampa teaching one of the themes from ‘The Way of Tibetan Buddhism.’ There will then be time for reflection and discussion before another short period of meditation.

This course is hosted by Fylde Buddhist Meditation Group. For more details, check out the Fylde group page. All are welcome.

For more information, please email fylde@dechen.org or phone Peter on 07961 885668.

All the meditation classes are listed in What’s On.

If none of these days or times is convenient, check out the online sessions and classes on Buddhism organised worldwide by the Dechen community: Dechen online classes.
