With the start of a new year perhaps it’s time to start a regular meditation practice.

From Tuesday 31st March we will be changing our approach and using Zoom from time to time to provide led meditation sessions. This will be suitable both for experienced meditators and for beginners – so when we a meeting is advertised simply join in and give it a try!
So how will it work?
1. You should download the Zoom app to your phone or computer and register with Zoom before you join us 2. The link for the meeting will be provided – to join all you will have to do is click on the link at 7:30pm. We will then guide the session. 3. On joining you will find your microphone is muted – please can you remain muted unless instructed, to avoid any distracting noises. 4. You are not obliged to have video switched on – we know some people don’t like it! 5. We will lead an introduction and a meditation lasting about 30-40 minutes. So try to find somewhere comfortable if you can, where you won’t be distracted. 6. On joining you will see an image of the Buddha. However, you certainly don’t have to be a Buddhist to join and get benefit from the meditation 🙂
There will not be a session on Tuesday 7th April, but watch this space for the next one.
Following the Government advice today it is sensible to cancel our Tuesday meditation session. Sorry for this, but it is clearly the right course of action. Let’s all meditate together anyway tomorrow, and we will try to get a virtual session organised as soon as possible to keep us going while things are as they are! Keep smiling 🙂
It is a very unsettling time for everyone, and meditation can be an important help in managing our worries.
With that in mind we will run our meditation drop in on Tuesday 17th March at Simpson Village Hall as normal (7:00pm). However, we will avoid shaking hands, and will space chairs and cushions out well as we have plenty of room in the hall. If you are experiencing any symptoms at all, or have just returned from an affected area can we ask you not to attend please.
We will be investigating using a tool for hosting video meetings to allow us to continue our meditation sessions if we are advised to stop all public gatherings. So watch this space for more information about that over coming weeks!
If Government advice should change over the next 48 hours and affect our plans we will let you know here.
Come along to Simpson Village Hall on Tuesday 3rd March at 7:00pm and join us for a group meditation (Beginners welcome!). The Buddha used the image of a lake as a guide for the state of the mind in meditation – We achieve Stillness, Simplicity and Contentment when the waters of our minds are still and crystal clear, like a lake on a windless day
Oh no – It’s that time of year again! Alas, we have a few Tuesday evenings coming up where we don’t have Simpson Village Hall booked – and the first of these is Tuesday 11th Feb. So sorry – NO MEDITATION ON TUESDAY. However the good news is that we’ll be back refreshed the following week on Tuesday 18th. 😀
