Intro Course: Get To Know Your Mind with Buddhism & Meditation

Posted by bhpruitt to Portsmouth Buddhist Center on Thu, 16 Nov, 2017 - 20:18

Our next four-week introductory course will focus on meditation within a Buddhist framework. Dh. Suddhayu will teach two traditional meditations, mindfulness of breathing and cultivation of loving kindness, placing them in the context of the Buddha’s teaching. Together these practices and teachings hold the key to shifting our minds toward greater capacity to dwell in the present and a larger field of kindness towards ourselves and others.
