Foundations of Meditation

On this online beginners course we explore developing some of the central elements of meditation practice, such as:

• Finding a good comfortable posture
• Cultivating basic mindfulness
• Beginning to develop samadhi or meditative calm
• Working with the most typical hindrances to meditation
• Developing attitudes of kindness and compassion
• Working with the inner critic
• Learning practices supportive of letting go

Each of the four teaching sessions includes a guided meditation, some teaching, as well as space for questions and comments. This four week online course aims to support beginning a regular independent meditation practice.
