Learn to Meditate

I A Learn to meditate at our weekly classes in Bridgend, Mid Glamorgan, South Wales (dates and venue below). 

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.

Disclaimer: We are extremely grateful to the Bridgend Quakers for allowing us access to their facilities, however, that in no way means that they endorse the Awakened Heart Sangha or indeed vice versa.  The AHS, however, has the greatest respect for all Quaker organisations and practitioners and feel sure that respect is reciprocated.
