During the weekly two-hour classes, periods of silent sitting will be followed by discussions led by by two of our senior monastics, Rev Heng Sure and Bhikshuni Heng Chih or other monastics/experience meditators experienced meditators monastics . The discussion periods will provide opportunities for practitioners to share their experiences and insights in a group setting while engaging in open-ended question-and-answer discourse. Through intervals of silent sitting, participants will discover more about themselves, relieve stress, and rejuvenate their vitality; intervals of instruction will help participants gain insight into how to apply concentration and wisdom as they move through their daily lives. What happens in stillness can influence how we handle ourselves in movement; what happens in movement can be reflected upon in times of stillness. Each class takes practitioners through a set of mindful exercises that moves the spine in all 6 directions, lubricating the joints throughout the body and cultivates vitality, energy, fluidity and strength. It is suitable for people of all ages. No prior experience is required. Just wear comfortable clothing and let the teacher know if you have any injuries.

What we're about

In this fast-paced world, where everyone suffers from overflowing email inboxes, information overload and intense deadlines, stress, anxiety, and pressure to succeed are on the rise across all age groups and professions. The antidote to this scattered, sometimes frantic, state which helps you return to the present moment so you can be fully aware, and appreciative of joy, beauty, and peace in our everyday life is having a Mindfulness meditation practice. The Weekly Meditation Class is a perfect introduction to the Mahayana Buddhist teachings and an opportunity to connect with other practitioners or meditators. It begins with a group meditation practice followed by a talk or Q&A by two of our senior monastics, Rev Heng Sure and Rev Heng Chih or other experience meditators. Suitable for beginners and experienced practitioners. The Weekly Meditation Class is an opportunity to meditate in a supportive group setting and for those are curious about how Buddhist wisdom and meditation can be applied to every day life.Bring your friends!
