Daily Morning Meditation
We teach two Buddhist meditation practices: Mindfulness of Breathing, for developing awareness, integration and clarity of mind; and Mettā Bhāvanā (“development of loving kindness”), which brings about a gentle but radical transformation of our emotional world, alternating between the two practices.
These sessions are for those familiar with the two meditations taught at the Colchester Buddhist Centre - The Mindfulness of Breathing and the Mettā Bhāvanā.
These are online sessions put in place in response to Government guidelines following the spread of the Covid-19 virus.
Classes are free but your donations are greatly appreciated. Make an online donation here
