Meditations on the Path to Enlightenment Retreat

Lamrim, or the stages of the path to Enlightenment, is a series of heartfelt meditations taught by Buddha that awaken our loving kindness, compassion, and wisdom, and enable us to realise our full potential and reach our spiritual goals. These ancient meditations are perfectly suited to the modern world – helping us to build a foundation of inner peace within our busy and often stressful lives.

Through gaining a special experience of Lamrim we can learn to control our mind, develop a good heart and find meaning in our life. Each guided session consists of a simple guided meditation to help us settle our mind (such as breathing meditation), a teaching on Lamrim, and then a second meditation based on this teaching. Suitable for complete beginners or experienced practitioners alike – please come along!

Session 1: 10.30 – 11.45 am
Session 2: 12.15 – 1.30 pm
Session 3: 3 – 4.30 pm (including Q&A)

Session 4: 11am – 12.15  pm

Here are some common questions that people ask about our meditation classes. If you have any other questions please contact us and we will be happy to help you in anyway.

Q) What is meditation?

The purpose of meditation is to cultivate positive states of mind, conducive to peace and well-being, and overcome negative habits of mind. Happiness is a state of mind, therefore the real source of happiness lies in the mind, not in external conditions. When our mind is peaceful we are free from worries and mental discomfort, and we experience true happiness.

Meditation is a technique used by millions of people to develop a calm and peaceful mind. It reduces stress, anxiety, and other negative states of mind and promotes physical and mental well-being. The meditations we guide are non-sectarian, non-judgemental, and universal. They are simple and accepted methods to help people tackle the stress and anxiety associated with the challenges of modern daily life.
