Meditation classes Melbourne – an Introduction

Each year we give meditation classes as Meditation classes as an introduction to meditation. They began in 2020 on Tuesday, February 4 at the Augustine Centre, Main Hall, 2 Minona Street, Hawthorn. (However, subsequently, because of Covid-19 the classes are now given live on Zoom).


The classes assume no prior knowledge. Thus they are a good starting point for those new to meditation. Over eight weeks you gain a solid grounding in meditation practice. Most importantly you will have confidence in your understanding. Due to this you can continue meditating and manage on your own at home. Most continue on weekly though, as there is much to learn. 


Though self contained, each class continues to build knowldege. Importantly, every class comprises a teaching on meditation and a period of guided meditation. There is also an opportunity at the end for discussion and question and answers.


Those with some prior experience of meditation report that going over the basics again helps improve understanding. Therefore our classes are helpful for experienced meditators to build their understanding.


There are various forms of meditation. And we cover many of them through the course of these introductory classes. You will also learn how to apply mindfulness. Consequently, attention, focus and awareness are strenthened. As a result your meditation becomes more powerful.


Although some find an eight-week course is enough to satisfy their interest, others will discover a thirst for more knowledge. For that reason our classes continue to cover more ground throughout the year. They provide the foundation for more advanced classes to follow on.


Beyond meditation classes Melbourne 2020


These introductory classes are a precursor to Buddhist meditation classes. Buddhist meditation classes pursue meditation practice to its ultimate fulfilment. They show us a path to enlightenment.


Would you like to discover a sense of supreme calm within yourself? Maybe developing focus, clarity, mindfulness and awareness is of interest.  Perhaps you would like to deepen your understanding of how life unfolds around you. In that case, these meditation classes are for you.


Learning meditation and mindfulness gives you tremendous tools for training your mind. Through regular practise, you will find a blissful inner state and happily engage in life’s adventures.


In conclusion, a meditation practice is an opportunity to improve all aspects of life.
