A Learn to meditate at our weekly classes in Bridgend, Mid Glamorgan, South Wales (dates and venue below).
During these strange unprecedented times you can still learn to meditate by pursuing the introductory course online via the Zoom video platform. The information below still applies but now facilitated online courses are for the time being the norm. After completing the introductory course you can join the main group for further meditation and instruction. Many of the main group still meet weekly online perhaps surprisingly very successfully, maintaining a spiritual dharma connection and continuing to further their spiritual journey.
We welcome complete beginners as well as those with meditation experience looking to practice with others. Contact Dorje via the contact page.
We run a six week introductory course ‘Heart of Meditation’ at various times throughout the year. It may be possible to follow the course as home study with support from a mentor before joining the main group of meditators if you prefer. For more information please do get int touch via the contact page.
The type of meditation we practice is called ‘Formless Meditation‘ to differentiate it from other types of meditation that use form. Learning this type of mindful meditation can help us to feel more relaxed and less stressed. Find out more about Formless Meditation at www.howtomeditate.org.uk.
Introductory classes begin with an introduction to formless meditation delivered in a non-doctrinal fashion, for those who initially simply want to learn to meditate (see weekly format below).
The six week “Heart of Meditation” course is aimed mainly at beginners but is also suitable for those with previous meditation experience who wish to learn about “formless meditation” and receive further instruction from an experienced meditator trained in mentoring and communicating meditation techniques.
It is important but not essential to try and attend all the sessions where possible for the six week course. An advance payment of £35 is requested to cover the full cost of the course.
