COURSE DESCRIPTION:
The heart of this course will be a Loving-Kindness meditation (metta bhavana) that encourages us to be kind to ourselves and promotes a sense of connection and empathy with others. Metta means ‘love’ (in a non-romantic sense), friendliness, or kindness: hence ‘loving-kindness’ for short. It is an emotion, something you feel in your heart. Bhavana means development or cultivation.

Traditionally the benefits of cultivating Loving-Kindness include:

* Good sleep – we fall asleep and wake up happily, and don’t have nightmares!
* Love and appreciation from other people and animals.
* Swift concentration of mind.
* Protection from violence.
* A serene looking face! And
* An enhanced sens of meaning in every day life.

In this 6-week meditation course, we will:

o Receive an introduction/ check-up/ deepening to good meditation posture.
o Learn/ deepen & practice a Body Awareness meditation and ‘The Mindfulness of Breathing’ meditation.
o Learn/deepen & practice a loving-kindness meditation or Metta Bhavana.
o Study how the mind works (thoughts, emotions, feelings)
o Do pair and group exercises
o Be given daily life practice opportunities which will greatly enhance the benefits of the course by taking what you learn into our everyday life.
o Be sent emails each week to encourage us to practice between workshops.
o Have an opportunity to ‘free download’ meditations

The group will evolve together during the six weeks in which the participants will have frequent opportunities to discuss together with their peers and the teacher the insights, difficulties and questions that might arise during the course. A sense of supporting community may emerge, creating a suitable environment for learning and practicing.
