We're into our new season of online meditations, exploring through January the theme of 'Contemplating The Way Things Are'. We're augmenting our main Friday sessions on the theme with a series of open meditations on Tuesdays - to open up as much space for reflection and absorption as possible. Join us if you can!

Experience of meditating in our community is recommended as there won't be much ongoing facilitation during the sit.

We'll be taking a community approach to meditating on the nature of reality as described by the Buddha. Something that hints at the transcendent possibilities while remaining grounded in everyday experience.

This week we'll pair a meditation on the breath with considering the fundamentally impermanent nature of all conditioned things that arise to use in our perceptions of the world and of ourselves.

Come and sit with us, and help create a field of warmth and calm and goodwill within which to explore some of the most important aspects of the Buddha's insight and teaching.

Today we complete our series of Tuesday Meditations in which we harness the power of reflection, with today's topic: The Path. A musing on our own practice of ethics, meditation, and wisdom, and our potential for Enlightenment.

Please try to arrive a few minutes before the meditation begins. If you join the meditation late, please mute your microphone to avoid disturbing others.

This class - like all our classes - is offered by donation. Give now if you can and support our work: thebuddhistcentre.com/giving

N.B. This class is offered for those familiar with meditation in our community (or equivalent). If you haven’t sat much before, you might find the Friday drop-in meditations helpful as more instruction is offered.

Bah humbug! I looked out for the notice but didn't see one, so I thought you were still having server problems and went ahead with a solo sit. Metta to everyone :-)

PS. The Details say it's going to be tomorrow 10 December, at 1am, Central European Time. I think it's time the world all worked to the same time, don't you?

We'll be taking a community approach to meditating on the nature of reality as described by the Buddha. Something that hints at the transcendent possibilities while remaining grounded in everyday experience.

This week we'll use a meditation on kindness as a context within which to reflect on the nature of all things - including ourselves - when nothing can be said to have any fixed or essential nature. Not so much a head space, as a heart space, holding the biggest questions of all.

Come and sit with us, and help create a calm field of warmth and goodwill within which to explore some of the most important aspects of the Buddha's insight and teaching.

Hey, thank you for the meditation! Sorry I left the call. My computer gave an error and when I opened my eyes, I wasn't in the call. I have to sleep early any way. Good night :)

We continue our series of Tuesday Meditations in which we harness the power of reflection, with today's topic: The Preciousness of Human Life.. Resting the mind in calm focus on a single topic can lead to opportunities for wisdom to blossom. Over the next several weeks we'll be reflecting on various topics to see what arises!

Please try to arrive a few minutes before the meditation begins. If you join the meditation late, please mute your microphone to avoid disturbing others.

This class - like all our classes - is offered by donation. Give now if you can and support our work: thebuddhistcentre.com/giving
