We’re delighted to introduce you to the newly published Introducing Mindfulness: Buddhist Background and Practical Exercises by Bhikkhu Anālayo.

Dhyana through the body - Online Event Led by Tejananda

From The Community Toolkit for Uncertain Times on Wed, 26 Aug, 2020 - 17:47

Saturday 3rd - Sunday 4th October

If an approach to practice is not working for you, do you just carry on doggedly hoping that it will somehow improve? It’s not very likely that this will work! This is as true of dhyana or absorption practice as any other area.

So, during this weekend, Tejananda will be suggesting approaches people have found to be helpful and effective in opening to dhyana by exploring body, breath and awareness....
