Mindful morning Meditation series at the House of Dhamma



A four-morning course for adult English speakers who would like to learn how to practise
traditional Buddhist Insight (mindfulness) meditation
but without too much ritual.


This set of four sessions is suitable for English speaking adults who wish to get a
comprehensive grounding in Buddhist meditation practice. Participants will be introduced to
and experience the twinned practices of walking and sitting meditation.

This way of practising meditation combines heightened concentration with authentic awareness of the stream of present moments. Although it dates from over 2,500 years ago, the practice of Vipassana meditation is timeless and exquisitely relevant to the intelligent seeker of today.

The four mornings together will give an experiential overview of traditional Buddhist Vipassana Meditation.

Each of the four sessions will have the theme of one of the Four Foundations of Mindfulness:
Kayanupassana – mindfulness of the body
Vedananupassana – mindfulness of feelings
Darmmanupassana – mindfulness of mental contents
Cittanupassana – mindfulness of the underlying states of mind


A typical three-hour session will be similar to the following:

Opening activity and discussion leading into:
Walking meditation (about 20 minutes)
Sitting meditation (about 20 minutes)
Sorb arom (feedback)
Dhamma talk and discussion

The four sessions in the series will give the participants the essential information and hands-on experience that they will require to continue to practice on their own or in a Thai meditation centre or the meditation section of a temple.
