The Deepening Meditation Practice Course is for people who have an existing meditation practice who would like to explore the benefits and possibilities of a deeper and more consistent practice. It will ideally suit those who would like to work towards practising 30 minutes or more per day.
The course will provide more detailed instructions for working with stable attention on breath, including common obstacles and antidotes. The emphasis is on deepening the practice of śamatha (calm abiding), however there will also be discussion of vipassanā (insight) meditation techniques, and on working skillfully with the body, emotions, and mental content. We will also explore more meditation practices as derived from Buddhist teachings and explore how meditation and mindfulness can integrate effectively into daily life.
“Deepening Meditation was exactly the right course to follow from an introductory course or for someone who has already done some beginner practice. It really got me more involved in meditation and showed me what a practice can be. I now feel really motivated to go deeper, deeper, deeper!”
“While the Introduction course felt like I was building my own meditation toolkit…the Deepening Meditation course felt I discovered an entirely new set of meditation tools underneath the first. With these new skills and techniques I reached a deeper and more engaged level of breath awareness, clarity and focus.”
