Our Meditation Courses

Our meditation courses are designed to gain deeper experience of practical topics. We offer half day, day and weekend courses throughout the year.

Half Day Courses

We offer a half day course each month on Saturday morning or  afternoon. Each half day course consists of two one-hour and fifteen minute sessions with a 30 minute break between sessions. The break is time to discuss, ask questions or simply go for a walk.

In each session, there is a teaching, discussion and guided meditation to deepen our understanding on a particular topic. Meditation courses are designed for us to bring Buddha’s wisdom to solve our daily problems. By contemplating topics in this way and discussing with our spiritual friends, we increase our own insight or inner wisdom. Through gaining a deeper experience of Buddha’s teachings, we are able to increase the source of our inner peace and happiness.

These half day meditation courses are open to everyone, to all backgrounds and level of experience.  Courses are held in person only.

$25. Includes refreshments. Free for members.

Day Courses

We also offer day courses three or four times a year. Day courses are a wonderful opportunity to spend a Saturday contemplating and meditating on an aspect of Buddhist wisdom. During these courses we are able to take an in-depth look and deepen our meditation experience on Buddha’s teachings.

By deepening our understanding on Buddha’s teachings on renunciation, bodhichitta, the correct view of emptiness, we can more easily integrate these teachings into our daily life and solve our daily problems.
