Meditation Course starts online next week

Meditation Course starts online next week

Vipassanā Fellowship's New Year online course begins on 26th January and there is still time to join us. The twelve week course provides a great start to a new year with the opportunity to learn to meditate - or to develop an existing mindfulness practice in the company of others from around the world. The course focuses on developing a fruitful and sustainable meditation practice.

The courses have been offered since 1997 and they have proven helpful to meditators in many countries. The 12 week course serves as a practical introduction to samatha (tranquillity or serenity) and vipassanā (insight) techniques. Intended primarily for beginners, of any faith or none, the course is also suitable for experienced meditators who wish to explore different aspects of the tradition. The emphasis is on building a balanced meditation practice that is compatible with home life.

The course offers daily material for each of the 12 weeks, interaction between participants and support from the tutor. Participants also have access to a audio guided meditations and chants to support the text. The course will be led by UK based meditation teacher Andrew Quernmore.

The course begins on January 26th and ends on April 19th. Application details and further information is available here:
