MEDITATION PRACTICE COURSE

Recorded Teachings

(OCT 2020 - AUGUST 2021)

Shamatha, Vipashyana & Compassion Meditation

With Glen Svensson

The three core areas of spiritual practice are mindfulness, wisdom and compassion.

In other words cultivating attentional, cognitive and emotional balance, as a basis for achieving mental balance and well-being.

In Buddhism these are often referred to as shamatha, vipashyana and compassion practice.

Over twelve days we will introduce and practice meditations in these three core areas of practice.
