This was our fourteenth session at Broad Oak Village Hall.
We discussed some ideas together
and then I explained that I had substituted some new words in our guided practice.
We practised this modified Sitting Meditation and also our Walking Meditation.

This step is an opportunity to practise being aware of our breathing without getting involved in our breathing. It is tricky to do at first. The fact that you are aware of breathing will to some extent influence this action. As with many aspects of meditation you can vary the balance between observation and control.

We can see how we get on with it.

Against all odds we beat the All Blacks and are in the rugby final on Saturday.
Having thought for only a few moments I have decided that I have to watch this instead of meditate.
I apologise to anyone who was hoping to come along.
Followed by the 23rd of November.
There will be NO sessions in December – I am going to Australia for Christmas
I have booked the hall throughout January and February.
If you have enjoyed meditating as a group tell your friends.
Everyone is most welcome.
