We’re wrapping up the last segment of a four-week series of Tuesday meditations on the Brahma Viharas, or “divine abodes”. In these meditations we’ve cultivated various aspects of positive emotion - including loving-kindness (metta), compassion (karuna), sympathetic joy (mudita), and equanimity (upeksha).
Join the online sangha Tuesday, 23rd January at 2:30pm ET / 7:30pm UK on Google Hangouts as we explore the final week’s Brahma Vihara, equanimity (upeksha).
Join the online meditators sangha for a four-week series of meditations on the Brahma Viharas, or divine abodes. In these meditations we will cultivate various “flavors” of positive emotion including loving-kindness (metta), compassion (karuna), sympathetic joy (mudita), and equanimity (upeksha).
Meditation sessions are held at 2:30pm ET / 7:30pm UK on Google+ Hangout. See the links below for each week’s event. Some experience of basic mindfulness and metta practices is helpful, but not necessary.
Hi everyone! We’re going to have to shift how we do our weekly meditations now that the new Google+ is harder to avoid. It’s not possible to make events with hangout links as we’re used to doing.
For tomorrow’s meditation - Friday 27th at 11am EST/4pm UK- we’ll meet on Skype. Connect with user thebuddhistcentre.com then message us and we’ll add you to the call. We’ll work towards something more permanent as soon as possible!
This week we’ll be looking at bridging the gap between imagination and action. In a difficult week around the world with extreme violence near at hand, we’ll be engaging with Metta (loving kindness) as a radical way to connect with others, and calling forth a sense of urgency to explore together how we might help bring forth a more peaceful world. Come and help us build our meditative community, and take a stand for deep kindness and compassion in the...
This week we’ll be continuing our informal exploration of the role of imagination in Dharma practice - in meditation itself, and in looking at how we respond to whatever arises via the mind and the five senses through the course of our days.
As ever we’ll sit together, we’ll talk and share what moves us. You’re also invited to bring with you any piece of writing that has inspired your own spiritual life. It could be a poem, a passage from literature, a...

Starting a new series of Tuesday meditations, we’ll be spending time exploring the various terrains of mindfulness practice - looking at different approaches to paying attention to the ground of our being…
It’s harder than it sounds, right? :) And yet we know it’s possible, every day… We might sit more deeply in our experience, we might move towards a greater sense of ease with how we carry ourselves through the world.
Over the next weeks we’ll be continuing our collective practice of simply sitting together, being with each other in meditation around the world, bearing each other in mind and in heart.
Time to keep going with those new year’s resolutions around meditation! Sit with others online and connect on a different level that can help sustain you through the long winter/summer days wherever you are…
Join us for some largely silent practice and the chance to share conversation about meditation afterwards with others…
