Introduction to Buddhist Meditation
In the beginning stages of practice we work to develop the power of undistracted concentration. Generally, throughout our everyday lives our minds are constantly distracted by an unending stream of discursive thinking. We have no control over this ‘unconscious’ thought process. This thinking conditions every experience that we have so that we no longer experience the actual reality of what is happening -- we experience our unconscious ‘edited’ version. Shamatha meditation allows us to develop the power to cut through discursive mind and experience reality directly.
Join us to begin your journey: no strings attached and no charge. Sundays from 10 - 12
