Event Details

Du får meditationens teori och praktik: en översikt av olika meditationstekniker och egna praktiska erfarenheter av dem. Du lär dig vilka färdigheter som utvecklas i meditation och hur du kan tillämpa dem i det dagliga livet.

Du får pröva olika grundläggande meditationstekniker; meditation med fokus på andning, mindfulness, visualisering och analytisk meditation, enligt den Tibetanska Mahayana-traditionen av Lama Tsongkhapa (Gelug).

Det specifika med ”Buddhistisk meditation” är att den har långsiktig målsättning, för genuint mentalt välbefinnande – som skapas genom studier och egna erfarenheter i meditation.

Kursen hölls på svenska, kursinformation på engelska nedan:
