Monday Night Meditation: The Brahma Viharas

Embrace autumn with happiness, freedom, and love

As the evenings draw in and the nights become cooler, on Monday nights at Effra Space we will be welcoming the seasonal change by developing our capacity for love, sympathetic joy, compassion and equanimity in our meditation practice as we explore the Brahma Viharas – ancient Buddhist teachings that help us to explore positive emotion in all its aspects.

Over eight weeks we will be exploring these ‘Divine Abodes’ through our meditation practices, the Mindfulness of Breathing and the Metta Bhavana, and 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)
