Simply Mediation

An opportunity to come and join the Sangha for a day of silent meditation practice. This is a chance to get together with fellow practitioners and gain greater depth in the experience of meditation. It is an ideal environment where those who would like to sit more than they currently do can be supported by the group endeavour of like-minded meditators.

The emphasis will be on silent sitting meditation and walking meditation. It will be assumed that participants have already had some instructions, such as having attended Introduction to Meditation or other courses.

The Sangha will lead the practice, signalling the beginning and end of each session. There will be no instructions during the retreat but in the breaks participants will be able to ask questions related to the practice.

This practice is open to all and there is no need to book in advance. Participants are welcome to join in as many sessions as they wish however, once a session has started, it is not possible to join therefore the only requirement is to arrive before the start of a session. Participants are always welcome to bring offerings of flowers for the shrine as part of meritorious activity.
