Introduction to Meditation: Peace, Mindfulness and Awareness

Please note: these sessions are on-hold and will be returning around April 2018.

While there are many forms of meditation offered in Sydney these days, Rigpa Sydney offers authentic meditation practices drawn from the centuries-old Tibetan tradition and helps us to discover their relevance to our busy modern lives.

Peace, mindfulness and awareness in the modern world offers:

  • an introduction to how to meditate
  • time and space to practice calm abiding, mindfulness and awareness
  • discussion of how we can bring the benefits of meditation into every aspect of our daily lives
  • video teachings

This morning is for newcomers to Buddhism and meditation, as well as those who already have some experience with meditation and wish to deepen their understanding and practice.
