Todmorden meditation class
Classes consist of guided meditations and a short and practical talk on how to apply Buddhist wisdom to the day to day problems we face in our busy modern lives. There will be time for questions. These classes are suitable for everyone, whether you have meditated before or this is your first time. No special clothing is necessary and most people choose to sit on chairs.
You are welcome to stay afterwards for a cup of tea and a chat.
Seating is on chairs so no need for any special clothing, but feel free to bring a cushion and blanket if you prefer to sit on the floor. Advance booking is not required.
New Series: Dealing with daily difficulties
Life is difficult. The times when everything flows the way we want it to are definitely the exception. Often people do not cooperate with our wishes. Often our body, especially as we get older, refuses to cooperate. Every day small things go wrong, and sometimes disaster and tragedy affects our life. We are living in an increasingly difficult world, both on a global level and personal level. Sometimes we can change things, but often there is little we can do externally. But we can always learn to respond inwardly in a calmer, kinder and more positive way. In the long term, this inner change actually makes more of a difference than any external change could make.
