3-Week Meditation Challenge

8th January @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm GMT

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 7:30 pm on Monday and Wednesday, repeating until 24th January 2024

Sign up to the Meditation Challenge

Your mind is your most valuable asset and your most dangerous possession. It has an amazing capacity for both creativity and conflict. Every experience you have, or could possibly have, is mediated through your mind.

Meditation is one of the most direct and powerful ways in which we can understand how our minds shape our lives. Meditating with guidance from experienced meditators and meditating with other people are two major factors to help us gain confidence and trust in meditation.

Sign up for our challenge to meditate every day for three weeks and we will support you with tips, techniques and classes from inspirational meditation teachers

We’ll be holding two classes per week to inspire and guide you through the challenge so you can taste for yourself the freedom and energy that meditation can release in your life. Each day you will be sent a short video to support and encourage you through that stage of the challenge. This challenge is by donation, you just need to sign up!

On the Monday evenings of the challenge we’ll be exploring two foundational meditation practices – the Mindfulness of Breathing and the Metta Bhavana (or cultivation of love). On the Wednesday evenings senior Buddhist teachers Vajratara, Maitreyabandhu and Suryagupta will be talking about the deeper purpose and meaning of these meditations, how they relate to our own potential for depth, connection and ultimately, the freedom of breaking through to reality.

  • Monday 8th Jan: Special launch event with the challenge team
  • Wednesday 10th Jan: ‘Understanding Reality’ with Vajratara & the challenge team
  • Monday 15th January: Monday night drop-in class with the challenge team
  • Wednesday 17th Jan: ‘Reflecting on reality’ with Maitreyabandhu & the challenge team
  • Monday 22nd Jan: Monday night drop-in class
