Six week Meditation course at Newton Abbot Library
Starting 15 February 2018 – this evening course is suitable for all.

In Insight Meditation we are encouraged to open to the whole spectrum of our lived experience, meeting each moment with kindness, understanding, interest and steadiness as a means for developing well-being and wisdom.

Insight Meditation comes from the Buddhist tradition but can be practised by anyone. People of all faiths or none are welcome. Each class will include a period of guided meditation, a short talk and time for questions.
