Meditation in the Park – CANCELLED for now!
Sunday, August 6th @ 10:30 am – 1:00 pm
Meditation in the Park has been called off today due to the high winds and soggy ground.
Meditation in the Park is an opportunity for people to come and try meditation, led by experienced meditation teachers, outside in the beautiful surroundings of Christchurch Park.
There will be two meditations. The first at 11.00am and the second at 12 noon.
We will have guided meditation led by two experienced meditators on the main practices we teach here at the Ipswich Buddhist Centre – the Mindfulness of Breathing, and the Metta Bhavana.
Come on your own or with friends, enjoy a few hours of calm in the beautiful surroundings of the park.
Please bring your own chairs, picnic blankets and/or meditation stools/cushions. An area will be clearly marked out for you to choose your place. Feel free to join us for one or both led meditations.
The event is free to attend, if you wish to leave a donation you are free to do so.
How to Join In
The Meditations will be held near the Mansion House in Christchurch Park. It is advisable to bring a blanket or chair to sit on.
Times are to be confirmed, and will be shown at the top of this page.
