Norwich Samatha Beginners’ Meditation Classes

Meets weekly on a Tuesday 7- 9pm

Samatha is a form of meditation practice which applies ones attention to the breath in order to learn how to cultivate both calm and mindfulness. The breath is said to be a meditation object which is suitable for all. These sessions will also be exploring Metta (Universal Friendliness) meditation as a method to enhance self-worth. As these practices develop one observes how the mind operates and investigates techniques to bring about greater calm and mindfulness — both on the “cushion” and in daily life.

There is currently a group meeting and learning which welcomes interested individuals to join them in exploring Samatha meditation.

Meditation is individual to each meditator and keeps on developing and deepening over time, so guidance and discussion are provided not only in the group but also encouraged on a one-to-one basis.

Breaking news about this autumn term we will be meeting face to face for the majority of our sessions. I am excited about this because it creates a different flavour for the meetings. There is real supportive energy in the group and greater interaction, which is excellent for all, especially for those new to this meditation. Often more experienced meditators will offer novel suggestions to questions, providing new insight for everyone at the session

These classes are open to individuals who are interested in learning Samatha meditation and to individuals with experience in Samatha Meditation who wish to practice within an established group.
