Every Tuesday evening the Armadale Meditation Group holds a meditation class from 7pm to 8.30pm. Currently all classes are being conducted via ZOOM.  Please contact armadale@bswa.org for login details.

The classes will be conducted live on Zoom by a variety of monks from Bodhinyana Monastery, Serpentine WA (or Lay Teachers during Rains Retreat 10 July – 16 October 2022).

Each class generally begins with chanting the Metta Sutta, then receiving introductory meditation instructions for 1/2 hour, a guided meditation for 1/2 hour, and the last 1/2 hour is dedicated to a Q&A session and Dhamma talk (if time permits).

Listening with Presence

Meditation allows us to cultivate silence and inner peace. While silence is the golden door to learning to listen, does my meditation practice also help me be a better listener in my day-to-day life?

We will explore how you can deepen and broaden your listening with others, as well as inspire others to listen to you.
