Observing the Mind: Online Meditation Course

Calming and observing the mind is very useful if we want to have a taste of an authentic relaxation and to be less conditioned by our thoughts and emotions. Our judgments accompany us in our everyday life and keep our mind busy all the time, creating restlessness and tensions. With these specific meditation techniques we can learn how to rest and lower the level of stress in the mind.

The meditation we will learn this time is that of calm abiding, namely SHINE or SHAMATA.

We will apply the simplest and profound method of SHINE: fixation on an object.

This method is applied in different schools and approaches and is useful for any meditative practice. You will learn it and practice it together with the instructor, gradually developing your skill and focus.

The technique includes focusing attention on an object, followed by relaxation in presence and awareness.

You can discover the state of emptiness and impermanence, understanding that every thought that comes…also goes.

The suggested donation for this course is 45 eur (35 for IDC members). If you cannot affort it, please participate anyway, noone be denied participation for lack of funds. If you can offer more, you would be supporting our projects.
