This practice-based course emphasises the two essential elements of meditation: mindfulness and awareness. It is designed for those new to meditation and may be particularly helpful for those with some mindfulness or meditation practice who wish to go deeper into it.
Led by meditation instructors with many years of experience, the course will draw on wisdom and insights from the Buddhist teachings as well as findings from recent scientific research. Each session consists of meditation practice, reflection and discussion and includes a comprehensive workbook and guided audio meditations to support your practice at home.
