Starting afresh

Join us again for in-person classes on Monday nights.
Our Monday night classes are just in-person at Effra Space from 19th July.

As we edge into new freedoms of how we work, travel and socialise, with all their attendant excitements and anxieties, we want to stay open and emotionally buoyant through the changes. Meditation helps us deepen our resources in adversity and find joy in everyday interactions, meaning we can start each day afresh so that each moment of our lives can feel like an adventure.

This meditation series will support us starting afresh. We’ll be exploring the principles underlying the life changing practices of the mindfulness of breathing, and the cultivation of loving kindness meditations.

Week 16:
Join us this week to look afresh at the Metta Bhavana practice. The practice of loving kindness helps us to become more present to ourselves and others by becoming more emotionally open and engaged.

Suitable for newcomers and established meditators. The first half of the class will feature a talk on the current theme and the second half of the class, will have a second shorter meditation and go more deeply into the practices.

Join in person

If social distancing measures are lifted in England on 19th July as expected, this event may run at a larger capacity than recent classes. Simply drop in on the night, no need to book!

Face coverings are also expected to be discretionary from 19th July. The wearing of face coverings at this event will therefore be optional but still welcomed if you would prefer to do so.

7.30pm-9.30pm
at Effra Space, 21 Effra Parade,
SW2 1PX
