Over 4 weeks we will explore our personal meditation practice through the lens of a key Buddhist teaching - 'The Four Foundations of Mindfulness'. The course will be a mixture of teachings and experiential practices, designed to help you strengthen and develop your personal practice, and gain confidence in cultivating different ways of being in the world.
