4 Week Saturday Morning Online Course
8th – 29th January
8.30-10.00am Irish time
This short mindfulness meditation course offers practices guided in Irish with some basic Buddhist teachings, reflections and enquiry offered in English. We will learn and practice skills we can use in our everyday lives incorporating mindful yoga, sitting meditation practices amongst others.
To approach the breath, the body, the heart and the discursive mind with meditation practices guided in the Irish language, offers the participant an opportunity to approach experience in a novel way. In a sense, it can encourage us to bring a beginner’s mind to our everyday experiences. It can be helpful if you come to this course without the expectation of ‘knowing’ and understanding (the language) but rather bring a curiosity in a compassionate way.
Attendees do NOT have to be fluent but rather a willingness to be mindful to experience, pleasant and unpleasant, in a self-compassionate, non-judgemental way. A grasp and a love of the Irish language can help.
Táim ag tnúth le bualadh leat. (Please note facilitator is not a fluent Irish speaker).
