Learn the basics of meditation in these classes with Buddhist nun Kelsang Chogma
Learn the basics of meditation with this three-class video series available on demand until Saturday 18th July.
In this short series we will learn the basics of meditation and mindfulness and become familiar with some simple, guided meditations that anyone can learn to do.
The purpose of meditation is to make our mind calm and peaceful. If our mind is peaceful, we will be free from worries and mental discomfort, and so we will experience true happiness; but if our mind is not peaceful, we will find it very difficult to be happy, even if we are living in the very best conditions.
If we train in meditation, our mind will gradually become more and more peaceful, and we will experience a purer and purer form of happiness. Eventually, we will be able to stay happy all the time, even in the most difficult circumstances.
Class 1 – beginning meditation; developing inner peace
Class 2 – meditation to reduce negative thinking
Class 3 – meditation to nurture positive thinking
