Event: Introductory Meditation Afternoon

Introductory Meditation Afternoon

You are warmly invited to attend this introductory meditation event for the African Caribbean community, at which we will be teaching two meditation practices to calm the mind and open the heart. Led by Zhana.

On: Saturday 8th March 2008

Time: 12:00 - 4:00 p.m. - PROMPT START

At: The London Buddhist Centre, 51 Roman Road, Bethnal Green, London E2 0HU

Meditation is very beneficial for mental and physical health and wellbeing.

Increasingly, people from all cultures are realising the value of meditation for reducing stress, finding kindness towards oneself and others, and creating calm.

Zhana grew up reading stories about Harriet Tubman. Having escaped from slavery in Maryland in the American South, Tubman returned to the South 19 times to rescue others from slavery.

"As a Buddhist”, Zhana says, “I still find her a major inspiration because she was totally committed to freedom and liberation. And she risked her life over and over again for the sake of others.

“I am doing what I can to ensure that Black people can come along and learn to meditate in a friendly, welcoming environment."

We live increasingly stressful lives. We worry about paying the mortgage, and about our children’s education. We are seeing more and more violence among young people in the inner cities. In the modern world, there is a great need for meditation.

Of course, Harriet Tubman often had to deal with people who were more afraid of freedom than of slavery. Similarly, there are some people who will not even try Buddhist meditation because it’s different from what they are used to.

But anyone can benefit from Buddhist meditation, whether or not you are interested in Buddhism. If you put in the effort, you will get a positive result.
