Mindfulness & Insight

Saturday at 4pm – 6, 13, 20, 27 Mar

This 4-week course includes practices to increase mental stability, attention and concentration, and introduces the ‘Four Applications of Mindfulness’. Through investigating four types of phenomena: the body, feelings, the mind, and other mental and physical events, we can begin to recognise and distinguish between our conceptual projections upon reality and what reality itself presents to us. This can help us respond to experiences with a greater sense of clarity and insight.

All are welcome to join this introductory level course. Suitable for anyone with a mind and an interest in becoming more familiar with how it works. No belief in Buddhism is required.

Wear casual, loose, comfortable clothing. No need to bring anything. Tea and coffee available afterwards.

No course fee. Feel free to contribute any amount to the Centre’s donation box if you wish.
