During this one day course we will explore the methods employed to bring a sense of ease to the mind through the practice of meditation.

Calm abiding meditation (Shinay in Tibetan; Shamtha in sanskrit) is accomplished through the development of mindfulness, which can be described as an ongoing awareness of what we perceive. By training in focusing this awareness stably in meditation we can give rise to a more peaceful mind.

Meditation and mindfulness, practised regularly over time, have strong potential to make one’s general state of mind more positive: increasingly we can become free of habitual reactivity, unhelpful emotional patterns, and limited ways of seeing ourselves and others. With a more open and relaxed mind we will have less stress resulting from our living situation, and less tendency to be thrown by the ups-and-downs that life presents.

This course is designed to provide those with rather little or no meditation experience what they need, in terms of techniques and understanding, to establish an ongoing and fruitful practice of calm abiding meditation.

This course takes place on Sunday 20th August from 10.00 and 16.00 and is perfect for beginners. It will include posture, relaxation, breathing and other meditation essentials. A regular meditation practice can bring a greater sense of inner peace and calm an overactive mind.

Gelong Trinley

Having developed an early interest in Buddhism and Asian culture, Trinley spent six years teaching English, mostly in Japan and the Far East. He became a Buddhist having discovered Kagyu Samye Ling in 1994. Since then Trinley has spent several years in retreats and was ordained as a monk, with the name Tashi Zangpo, under Choje Lama Yeshe Losal Rinpoche. After being a monk for seven years he took full ordination vows in India in October 2010 and received the name Gelong Trinley.
