Oldenburg Meditation Group
The Oldenburg Samatha group is a group of six people who meet fortnightly on Fridays at 7 pm to practice meditation together and have Dhamma discussion. The meditation practice is based on mindfulness of in and out breathing. Dhamma is teachings the Buddha gave about meditation, and how to develop it in life.
If you are interested in our group meetings, please contact Catharina via email. Please include your Skype name for communication with the teacher (who lives in UK, and comes to Oldenburg from time to time to give more teachings).
In addition to the meetings,there is a course that you could go to if you wish:
