The Path as Symbol: Meditation as Personal Journey (start 8 Nov)

An intensive meditation course, for those who wish to take their practice deeper.

We will collectively explore how to create the conditions for a calm, peaceful mind that can more fully turn towards and stay with direct experience and how we can begin to meet difficult sensations, thoughts and emotions with curiosity and without judgement.

The course aims to help us see more clearly our habitual reactions and the suffering they create, and find out what else is possible.
