Mindfulness Meditation Classes for Beginners

Mindfulness Meditation Classes for beginners

Due to increasing demand the Scotland’s Buddhist Vihara will now be running three extra sessions per week for beginners. These classes are aimed at people who have no previous experience of meditation.

Mindfulness meditation has long been used in the East to treat a variety of ailments and Western medicine is catching on quickly these days. The techniques taught at the centre are simple to learn and are invaluable in the treatment of many problems caused by stress such as sleep disorders and headaches, anxiety and depression.

You don’t have to be suffering or ill to benefit. Mindfulness meditation is a system of being aware (or mindful) of those things in your life that you do have control over. It is particularly effective in increasing your sense of wellbeing as well as sharpening your focus and concentration in daily life.

These classes are to promote health and wellbeing through the practice of mindfulness meditation and are not religious in content. All are welcome.

Courses will commence on dates below and run weekly for eight consecutive sessions.

Tuesday 4th September 5-6pm (weekly)

Wednesday 5th September 1-2pm (weekly)

Saturday 8th September 4-5pm (weekly)

The centre does not have a formal charge and runs entirely on donations. Your Donation will allow the centre to continue offering these courses to those who need them.
