Introduction to Meditation & Buddhism in Clacton
at Quakers Meeting House Clacton
During the course you will learn the 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.
In addition to learning meditation, we will introduce traditional teachings of the Buddha in a way that is accessible and practical to everyday life in the modern world.
Booking in advance is required for this course.
The course is being run on a donation basis, booking is free.
