For those interested in exploring Buddhist practice and meditation we offer an eight week course which provides a grounding in the meditation practices we share within the Triratna Buddhist Community and looks at the Buddhist teachings that support them.
By the end of the eight week course you will be able to engage confidently with three essential meditation practices on your own and also take part in the wide ranging activities of the Triratna Community. Perhaps more importantly, you will have gained some understanding of how Buddhism can bring about positive transformation in our lives, questioning even ideas of who we are and how we relate to the world.
Each part of the course includes an optional practice day, usually on a Sunday, providing time to consolidate your meditation practice.
Introduction to Buddhist Meditation
Led by our senior meditation teachers, these courses offer a hands-on and systematic introduction to meditation. By the end of the course you will have a solid grounding in meditation, and an understanding of how it sits within a broader Buddhist context.
Following completion of this course, you will be able to access a range of other courses and events at Brighton Buddhist Centre including Day Retreats, Dharma Nights, Dharma Foundation Courses and Going Deeper in Meditation Courses.
