Our Wednesday open night resumes on 1st March and runs for six weeks. This is an ideal entry point for those looking to learn about meditation, mindfulness and its relevance in our daily life. Its also an opportunity for regular practitioners to come together and practice and to share some tea and have a chat with like minded people.
The meditation begins promptly at 8.00pm. There are two 20 min periods of sitting with a 10 min walking meditation in between. This is followed by a short reading and we finish with an informal discussion over tea.
For beginners, meditation instruction will be provided.
The suggested donation for the evening is 5-10 euro.
