When you achieve shamatha one result is incredible mental pliancy. Your mind follows your wishes and focuses wherever you like for as long as you like. – Geshe Lhundub Sopa
Shamatha means ‘to abide in peace’. It is the practice of tranquillity or stabilizing meditation – a method of allowing the mind to be more focused, calm and relaxed. This short introduction to meditation is offered for those curious about what meditation is and is not. Instructions on Shamatha meditation will be taught in this short 60 minutes together. Participants have the opportunity to stay with us for one more hour of Shamatha practices after this introduction. It’s also suitable for those who would like in-person guidance.
Participating in our weekly Monday Shamatha mediation (19:00 – 20:00) is open without registration.
