Travel back in time to explore the Buddha's original meditation techniques, as well as his road-map to spiritual awakening, in this extraordinary in-person workshop.

In this workshop at The College of Psychic Studies in London, we will explore the core topics and early practices offered by the Buddha himself. We'll go back to basics to unpack the foundational teachings of early Buddhism, as well as the building blocks of early Buddhist meditation techniques.

We will examine:

  • The foundational teachings of early Buddhism, including the key concepts and practices that have shaped the tradition
  • The different schools of Buddhism of today and their unique approaches to meditation and spiritual practice
  • The Buddha's original methods to relieve psychological suffering and trauma
  • How to prevent adverse effects in meditation
  • How to navigate the Buddha's stages of spiritual awakening

As part of our explorations in this in-person workshop, we will practice both samatha meditation to cultivate concentration and vipassana meditation to develop insight into the nature of reality. These meditation techniques have been carried forward through the centuries for us to practice today.

Book now and join us in the elevated space of the College to deepen your knowledge and practice of meditation and the Buddhist tradition.
