Notes from our 6 Week Meditation Course with a meditation diary

Notes from our 6 week meditation course

These are 32 pages of notes that we handed out in our introductory meditation course that lasted 6 weeks. They include a meditation diary, so you can have a different question to explore for 6 days each week for 6 weeks (36 questions). Plus there are some very deep and useful teachings on our two meditation practices that are contained in the notes.

If you use them as guidance before and after you meditate, they will help you go deeper into the practices.

Thank you to our friends at the London Buddhist Centre for making these available to us.

Free book – The Triratna Story by Vajragupta

Click here  for a free pdf of the book by Vajragupta “The Triratna Story” which charts the growth of a Western Buddhist movement founded in the Sixties as the ‘Friends of the Western Buddhist Order’ (FWBO) and recently renamed Triratna Buddhist Community. From its inception in London, to its development worldwide, The Triratna Story takes you behind the scenes of a unique modern Buddhist community. Extract: ‘This is the story of a circle of friends dreaming a dream, and working to make it a reality…It’s the nitty-gritty story of how a community evolves. It’s a story of idealism and naivety, growth and growing pains, hard work and burn-out, friendship and fall-out.’
