About the Event

This two-days Beginner’s Meditation Workshop is perhaps the most systematic and thorough introduction to the practice of Buddhist meditation available anywhere, benefiting practitioners of all levels. It covers the prerequisite conditions when preparing for meditation, proper sitting postures, techniques for relaxation, and basic methods of concentration. Plus other supporting techniques to regulate the body, mind, and spirit such as self-massage, yoga exercises, and daily mindfulness techniques. In this workshop you will not only learn sitting meditation but also breathing, walking, standing and sleeping meditation.

Vegetarian lunch will be provided for both days.

Notes: The Centre provides meditation mats/round cushions/towels. Wear clothing suitable for sitting meditation; namely loose and comfortable clothes with neutral colours.  No form-fitting pants, shorts or tank tops. Do not use perfumes, colognes, or cosmetics. No cell phone, reading, note-taking, or recording during retreat.

Fee: $120.
