Description of class
Some people would like to meditate but haven’t yet tried. Some have tried but don’t feel they have succeeded. We believe that anyone who is human, has a mind, has the wish and is breathing can learn to meditate effectively!
In this series of classes we’ll go back to basics and examine what is meditation (from a buddhist perspective), how to learn and practice meditation, and perhaps most importantly of all, how to encourage ourself to become regular meditators.
About these classes
We are happy to say that classes are available “in-person” at the Centre again 🙂
The classes include teachings, discussion and guided meditations. No previous experience of meditation is needed. The classes start with a short buddhist prayer. Everyone is welcome, buddhist and non-buddhist alike and anyone can benefit from these teachings regardless of nationality, culture, background, gender or age.
To attend you can just come along to the class or you can pre-book a ticket here. Tea is served from 17.30. A single class costs 85kr. If you wish, you can buy a Clip Card online here for four or eight classes, which provides some discount – or you can buy one at the Centre when you come.
Lineage of these instructions
The meditation practices we teach come from an unbroken lineage of instructions that go back to the teachings of Buddha, over 2500 years ago. They are timeless instructions that are very relevant for developing and maintaining a peaceful mind in today’s world.
Teachings for these classes will be drawn from Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche’s books “How to Transform Your Life” and “The Mirror of Dharma with additions”. Hard copies of both books can be purchased at the Centre and digital copies are available by following the links. “How to Transform Your Life” is available as a free e-book.
