Online Lunchtime Meditation
The basics of Buddhist meditation.
Suitable for complete beginners.
These sessions are for those familiar with the two meditations taught at the Colchester Buddhist Centre - The Mindfulness of Breathing and the Mettā Bhāvanā.
The session will start with chanting the Tiratna Vandana. The person leading the class will then ring bells to indicate the start of the meditation and the stages of the practice.
Please note this practice will not be led through. If you would like instruction then please attend the 8:30am morning meditation, lunchtime meditation or the Newcomers class on Wednesday evenings starting at 7pm.
