The first class of 2020: Thursday 6 February
Time: 12:15pm – 1:00pm
Weekly Mindfulness Meditation Practice allows you to practice meditation with others every Thursday lunchtime, and to perhaps also establish and strengthen your own meditation practice. For those of you who have done an Insight Meditation, Absolute Beginners Meditation or Mindfulness Meditation course, this class is an excellent way to continue and build on the skills you have learnt.
Each month we will invite a guest teacher to facilitate the meditation practice. On the rare occasions when the teacher isn’t present, we’ll play a guided meditation recording and sit together.
Come once, come every week to this informal gathering of meditation.
