Led by Rigdzin Shikpo’s authorised teachers, we meet weekly to practise formless meditation together and to deepen our understanding of the Buddha’s teaching.
Meditation is the means of connecting more fully with the world of our own experience. It is a path of complete openness of heart and mind, through which we come to realise the indestructible heart essence that is our true nature, thereby benefiting both ourselves and others.
Each session starts with half an hour of formless meditation, which is followed by a talk and a discussion. Participants are encouraged to ask questions.
The sessions are open to both experienced students and complete beginners.
If at some point you would like to learn the formless meditation we do, then please ask one of the teachers for the instruction.

The session will begin on 11th September with meditation and a general talk.
