Four Foundations of Mindfulness: 5 Weeks Course

When: Thursdays, 6 June to 4 July 2019, 7.30 – 8.45 pm
Where: Friends Meeting House, Temple Street, Llandrindod Wells LD1 5HF

This course will be an introduction and review of meditation practices in relation to the teaching on the four foundations of mindfulness. It is suitable for absolute beginners and for experienced meditators alike. The first evening will be focused on exploring the meaning of the word mindfulness in the Buddhist meditation context. The following four evenings will be dedicated to one of the four foundations of mindfulness.

This is a practical meditation course. The intention is to meditate together rather than engage in academic discussion. Teaching style will be experiential. Information will be shared through guided practice followed by time for Q&A.

Cost: We follow the Buddhist tradition of generosity (dana). Participants are invited to contribute to the financial viability of offering such courses according to ability and appreciation. You are welcome to make a contribution towards the course online or in person.

I began practicing yoga in 2000 and meditation in 2004. I discovered Gaia House in 2008 while exploring mindfulness as a counselling continues professional development possibility. I started facilitating the Mid Wales meditation group in 2013 and in 2016 I was invited by my teachers Yanai Postelnik and Kirsten Kratz to join the Gaia House Community Dharma Leaders (CDL) programme.

Committing to Buddhist Insight Meditation led to significant and ongoing positive change in my life. I love sharing my experience of exploring the Buddha’s teaching on and off the mat with fellow seekers and followers of the Buddhist paths.
