Meditation Sesshin Day

Sunday 1 December, 11.00am-4.00pm

Led by Vijayanandi

Sesshin is a period of intensive meditation and is a term, often used in the Zen tradition, literally meaning “touching the heart-mind”. Both the morning and afternoon sesshin will include periods of sitting and walking meditation as well as a silent tea break. These days are a chance to open up to and cultivate skilful qualities such as deeper awareness and positive emotions. The meditations are unled so you need to be confident with both meditations to attend.

Please come to the whole day if you can, though you are welcome to leave or join at lunch if you need to. Bring vegan or veggie food to share for lunch. Please give a donation for the day.
