'We have been doing meditation on and off, but with the world turning topsy turvy in the last few months,
it has now become an important part of our routine to use meditation to stay sane. We would like to thank you deeply for teaching us this life skill, it truly is an important refuge for us when everything outside seems too much to bear.'

Meditation and healing workshops and courses

 

If you want to go from being concerned about Covid 19 restrictions and political situations to “being empowered and knowing exactly what you can do to protect yourself”, Insight Meditation is a great option for you.

It can help you to take a long, clear look at your situation while remaining balanced and energized.

You’ll quickly understand how this practice is unlike other forms of meditation that you may have heard about.

It’s a completely different approach from meditation practices that aim for intensive concentration and that tend to be reclusive and austere.

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn about and practise traditional Insight Meditation at the House of Dhamma.

In general, courses are one or two days long, quiet but not silent, in an air-conditioned room and if you prefer it, you can sit on a chair.

All you need to do is breathe, stand, walk,
sit and lie down.

The House of Dhamma offers classes and courses in Buddhist Insight Meditation, a form of meditation that has been practised in Asia for over 2500 years.

It is a timeless practice that is also exquisitely suited to life in the 21st century.

When practising Insight meditation regularly, you come to know yourself better and become more confident. You are able to let go of dependency on others, limiting views and toxic behaviors. You also rediscover openness to whatever the moment may bring. These transformations result from an ongoing inner journey into deep peace.
