Learn to Meditate in Half a Day
Burnley Kadampa Buddhist Centre, Burnley
Saturday 13 May, 10am – 1pm
Discover the power of meditation in this half day workshop that will give you the skills to create inner peace or refresh techniques you have already learnt.
“If we train in meditation our mind will gradually become more and more peaceful and we shall experience purer and purer forms of happiness.
Eventually we shall be able to stay happy all the time, even in the most difficult circumstances.” – Ven. Geshe Kelsang Gyasto
Meditation is becoming increasingly recognised as an effective means to reduce stress and improve our quality of life, however it also has much deeper and far-reaching benefits that have been understood by Buddhist practitioners for thousands of years. During this workshop you will be guided by and experienced practitioner through several meditations that can be reproduced at home, learn how to improve mindfulness and concentration; as well as how to set up a regular meditation practice. There will also be an opportunity to ask questions and receive guidance on how to improve your meditation practice.
Workshops are a perfect way to both relax and develop internally. They are ideal for those who are new to meditation and those who would like to improve.
The cost of the workshop is £12 (GP Centre Card £5).
Refreshments are available in our World Peace Cafe during the workshop. Why not also stay for homemade soup afterwards?
