Toby Gillies Buddhist Meditation

Meditation classes in Beaumaris


Explore deeper Buddhist truths and practices

During 2018 Toby was also giving some classes at the Beaumaris Buddhist Meditation centre. He has a long association with the centre and friendship with the founder, Therese Bottomley, her family and many students at the centre.

Toby hasn’t been able to get there since, but we recommend you check their website as they have a range of classes to suit both newcomers and older students.

The sessions below were some of the teachings Toby gave in Beaumaris.

Death and Dying

Death is a the inevitable consequence of birth. But equally rebirth is the consequence of death. Though death may seem a finality, in truth it is merely a stage in the journey.

The Tibetan tradition holds a great deal of knowledge about what happens at the end of this life and what comes after. Just gaining this knowledge helps get rid of any fear of the unknown we may hold about death.

An in-depth knowledge of death also equips us with an understanding of the stages we will all go though, what inner signs accompany those stages, and how best to respond as the process unfolds.

We can also see more clearly how to help our loved ones who are coming to the end of life and how we can contribute valuably to their personal journey beyond this life.

Over the coming four week course this invaluable knowledge will be explained.

The amazing implications of karma

This four week course on Thursday evenings will explore the mysterious impact karma has on our lives.

Whether we are successful in our endeavours or meet with catastrophe. Whether our most treasured relationships are enchanting or a fragmented war zone. All depends on karma.

Though we may be oblivious to the impact of karma, it never stops affecting us – never has, never will. Long life or short, good health or bad – all depends on karma.

This course will answer your questions. What is karma? How does it help me? How does it hinder me? How can I turn karma to gain the maximum advantage? Why do good people often seem to suffer more than evildoers.

And the bigger questions. How did we get here? Where do we go? What does it all mean?  Who is in charge? How does group karma affect the individual?

Once we know the workings of karma we can approach the specific meditations which directly change the results of karma. With this we discover our innate ability to shape our lives to the best possible outcome.

We can release ourselves from the grip of bad karma and reach enlightenment.
