Meditations for a Happy Life | Wednesday Morning | 10 – 11am
These engaging morning classes offer an opportunity to train in meditation and mindfulness from the perspective in which these trainings were originally taught. Though derived from Buddha’s teachings, the instructions are suitable for everyone and provide special ways of thinking that are particularly relevant to the lives of modern people.
Each class will be based on one of twenty-one objects of meditation that form the core of the stages of the path to enlightenment or Lamrim in Tibetan. This is a special, practical presentation of Buddha’s teaching founded by the ancient Kadampa master, Atisha.
The class will begin with a simple breathing meditation to settle the mind. This will be followed by a practical teaching based on the New Meditation Handbook exploring the object of meditation for that week. Then there is an opportunity to take the teaching to heart through contemplative meditation.
The class concludes with an opportunity to ask questions and takeaway advice on how to engage in the meditation at home and integrate the insights gained into busy daily life.
Fees: Drop-in class, no need to book, £7 per class. Included in KMC London membership.
