Meditation is a method for investigating and working with our own mind. It is a profound technique that can help us to know ourselves more deeply, to learn to better manage our thoughts and emotions, and to develop our wholesome inner qualities in order to cultivate greater well-being in life. All the major religions of the world and many modern disciplines, such as psychology, use different forms of meditation and self-reflection.

The three-weekend experiential course ‘ABC of Meditation’ is designed for anyone, from complete beginners to advanced practitioners of all ages and cultures. It teaches the basic components of meditation – sustained attention and mindful awareness – and how to use them to develop our own inner qualities in the context of our daily lives. The course is taught in a universal way and does not particularly focus on a specific religion or tradition.

Course Structure

ABC 1 (October 19-20, 2019 at Lhagsam  Zurich)
The first weekend focuses mainly on the on the practices of sustained attention and mindful awareness to calm the mind and get in touch with its true nature.

ABC 2 (November 9-10 at Lhagsam Zurich)
During the second weekend we start to add an element of analysis to our meditation practice to work on transforming the mind and developing positive attitudes that are beneficial to oneself and to others.

The third weekend consists of a 3-day retreat. During these three days we will practice the meditations we learned in the previous modules and we will include the element of silence. Your accommodation and meals will be included.
