HOW TO MEDITATE

How can we transform difficult emotions?

How can we become kinder and wiser?

This is a five week introductory course to Buddhist meditation. In this course you will learn the basics about Buddhist meditation and train in various meditation techniques. We meet once a week for five weeks and these are the topics: 

Session 1: Meditation in Buddhism

Session 2: Mind in Buddhism

Session 3: Types of Meditation and Obstacles to Meditation

Session 4: The Meditation Session, Meditation Place, and Visualization Meditation

Session 5: Meditation Stops the Roller Coaster of Emotions

The course is suitable for people encountering both meditation and Buddhism for the first time, as well as for people who have done some meditation in other traditions but would like to know more about how meditation is practiced in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. It provides an overview of meditation and basic meditation techniques, including breathing meditation, mindfulness meditation, visualization meditation, and analytical meditation. It includes an explanation of what kinds of skills are developed in meditation and how to apply them in daily life.

How to Meditate can be done either before or after the introductory course Buddhism in a Nutshell, in which Tibetan Buddhist philosophy and principles are explored more extensively. However, if you are new to both Buddhism and meditation it is recommended to begin with How to Meditate and then do Buddhism in a Nutshell.
