As from the 26th of March we shall be recording a live teaching here at Amoghasiddhi KBC every Thursday evening from 7.30 pm to 9.00 pm. Each class will consist of a preliminary meditation, followed by a talk, then followed by a second meditation based upon the contents of the class.

The recordings will be sent out after each class finishes and sent to you via a secure system and then you can download and listen to them on your computer or mobile phone or transfer them to a portable device, such as an mp3.

The cost of each class will be £6.00  or £20.00 for five classes, when paid for in-advance. If you cannot afford the full price of the classes, then email us at ad@meditateinnorfolk.org.

In the future we are also looking at streaming our Thursday evening class and Inspiring Saturday Mornings talks, so please watch this space.

This is a very challenging and difficult time for everybody.  Whether you are working to keep services going, or having to self-isolate, or with children all around the place, most people are having to find a different way of living with different priorities and different routines.

There is a lot of uncertainty – we never like change, we never like not knowing!  It can lead to fear, anger and thinking only of ourself and our loved ones, and not realising that we are a part of a community, a whole, which in order to survive has to pull together.  We have so many examples of people who are putting others first, in our hospitals and whole NHS; Police; Fire; essential shops; Food producers and distributors eg those working on tills in supermarkets; Electricity and gas workers;  etc, a huge list of people! How wonderful they are!

We have so much to be thankful for!

BUT …. We need to take care of our minds! We need to take responsibility for our own state of mind. With all the worries and fears and changes, we need some peace in our mind, some calmness, some clearness, some spaciousness.  Then we can actually THINK about what to do in a sensible fashion, dealing with stress as it arises, not letting it build up eg. clearing away the dishes after every meal!

With some peace in our mind our relationships with others will, hopefully, not deteriorate and our interactions will be led by a sensitivity to how others are coping and a wish to help them.

So, in order to learn to control our mind, we need to be able to meditate.  

How do we do this?  We have to hear the instructions first, try them out, see that they make sense and then learn to put them into practice through contemplating and meditating just as the instructions say.  From this, we can take our feelings of peace into our life. The effect on our life may not at first be very noticeable, but over a couple of weeks will make a huge difference.

In the next few weeks I will be covering how we can cope and deal with the challenges we face, by keeping a positive and peaceful mind. So, I would like to invite you to our on-line classes, further details can be found below.

Everybody welcome!
