Monday Meditation: Brahma Viharas

Embrace autumn with happiness, freedom, and love.

Autumn is here, the evenings drawing in and the nights becoming cooler… On Monday nights at Effra Space we will be welcoming the seasonal change by turning up the warmth. We’ll be exploring positive emotion in all its aspects as we discover the Brahma Viharas. These ancient Buddhist teachings offer us the potential to develop our capacity for love, sympathetic joy, compassion and equanimity.

Over eight weeks we will be exploring these ‘Divine Abodes’ through our meditation practices, the Mindfulness of Breathing and the Metta Bhavana. Through these practices we’ll discover the possibility of cultivating expansive and creative states of mind that help us make sense of our daily lives.

For those newer to meditation or who are unfamiliar with the practices we teach, we will have a separate space for teaching and support covering the basics of our two main practices: the Mindfulness of Breathing and the Metta Bhavana.

These two classes will happen at the same time, in the same venue, with the chance to come together half way through for a tea break.

In-person – just turn up from 7.20pm, no booking necessary.

At this event, face coverings will be discretionary. The wearing of face coverings at this event is optional but still welcomed if you would prefer to do so.

7.30pm-9.30pm
at Effra Space, 21 Effra Parade,
SW2 1PX
(venue has step-free access throughout)
