The Art of Meditation
Dissatisfied with the prospect of a life without some deeper meaning? Blown away by the wonder of existence? Something in the quintessential image of the Buddha seated in meditation which speaks to your heart? Or just needing some guidance with your meditation practice?
If you’ve been meditating for any length of time, and the above concerns speak to you in some way or other, join this 5 week course to provide practical guidance which will help you stabilise and reorient your practice while at the same time enabling you to reignite the fires of your inspiration and see the bigger picture, so critical to this journey.
Using symbol, image, the spoken word, music, poetry and guided meditation, Prakashika and Nandavani will collaborate to share their love and experience of the practice of meditation. You will venture into the heights and depths of your mind and explore the terrain of freedom and insight through the art of meditation.
“An image of a kingly eagle gliding high in space:
Were one’s mind to glide without grasping
In the space of truth itself clear and void,
- from a poem by the 7th Dalai Lama
