Introduction To Meditation Workshop
Next One Day Meditation Workshop is on
Saturday 25th November 2017
This one day introductory workshop will provide people who are new to meditation, or interested in trying meditation, with the guidance, techniques and practice in the Dhammakaya Buddhist meditation method. (seven bases of the mind.)
The workshop will be held at the London Dhammakaya Buddhist temple in Working Surrey, organised by the Surrey Meditation Group. The meditation workshop will be led by a Dhammakaya Buddhist Monks.
The temple in Woking is an excellent location for meditation and the monks focus much of their time on meditation as part of their Buddhist practices, and as such are excellent teachers.
The workshop is non-denominational and focuses on meditation as a technique for personal development, benefit and improvement rather than a religious practice. The ultimate aim of the Institute is to promote peace and happiness in people’s lives and create everlasting peace in the world at large.
The workshop will cover:
- Getting ready to mediate – “Letting go your daily life”
- Introduce the techniques using in the workshop – ( “On the 7 Bases of the Mind”)
- Problems encountered during the meditation – “The 5 Hindrances and How to overcomes them”
- Mediation using in a mantra – “Meditation Practice of the 7 Bases of the Mind using Mantra”
- Mediation using Visualization – “The When, Why and How of Visualization”
There will be meditation talks, meditation sessions and opportunities to discuss and share meditation experiences and advice.
The workshop commences with registration at 08.30am on Saturday 25th November 2017, and includes a buffet lunch, tea, coffee and snacks during the day and closes at 16.00pm.
Here’s what people have experienced with us…
“I felt very relaxed. It is the very first time I have been to a Temple. The people here are lovely and the food was delicious. I will certainly read up on Buddhism.”
“A beautiful peaceful relaxed day. Mindfulness is so essential for a peaceful life. There is no peace in the world unless we have peace in our own hearts. I need to remind myself to let go of the need for attachment and acceptance and fill my heart with compassion and kindness. A lovely day, beautiful food and all staff are very gentle and kind. ” – Mrs. JP
“A most enjoyable experience, a great venue, excellent teaching and a brilliant atmosphere- thanks for a great day”
“Thank you very much. It was a very full day, but I really enjoyed it, and have learnt some skills that I hope to take to my everyday life”
