Lately, we have been listening to a series of talks on metta or loving-kindness meditation by the Australian Buddhist monk Bhante Sujato. You can listen to or download the first talk right here. Next Tuesday, April 13, we will listen to the second part of the talk at the link above, which includes a very nice guided meditation by this wonderfully clear and insightful meditation teacher.
We welcome both beginners and experienced meditators to the Meditation Circle of Charleston, and others who may hope to revive a meditation practice that has lapsed. We are a small, but devoted group of people with a lifelong interest in deepening our practice and understanding of meditation in the Buddhist tradition, through regular sitting practice and an understanding of the Buddha’s teaching surrounding meditation.
Come out to the group! If you are a beginner, we offer one-on-one basic instruction in sitting meditation in a separate room, to get you up-to-speed. These days, we’re doing longer sitting meditations of about 35 to 45 minutes, starting at 6 p.m., followed by tapes or discussion about sitting practice and the Buddha’s teachings. Join us in the circle.
