Meditation is a foundational tool of the Buddhist practitioner. We use different types of meditation in our practice to clear and calm the mind, review and deepen our understanding of teachings, develop concentration, and so on.

Our First Saturday Meditation practice will include three common modes of meditation:  breathing, concentration and analytical, with discussions in between.

Each Saturday will begin with a brief overview of meditation, based on notes taken from Geshe Gelek. 

Geshe Gelek says that practicing in a group enhances and increases the power of our meditation, with all of us benefitting from the shared energy and experience of others in the room.

These sessions are led by senior students.
