The Four Noble Truths

~ Introduction to Meditation ~

With Megan Lees

January 29th – March 4th 

Wisdom & Compassion Series

Buddhism has been around for thousands of years and has become a widely recognized philosophy across the world. Although it is an ancient practice, the benefits of Buddhism continue to be applicable. Practicing Buddhism can bring about many benefits, including reduced stress and anxiety, improved mental health, increased self-awareness, and greater empathy.

By recognizing the interconnectedness of all beings and cultivating compassion, people can also contribute to the collective well-being of society. Whether you are interested in Buddhism for its individual benefits or its potential for positive social change, it’s a practice that has much to offer.

Our entry-level course, ‘The Four Noble Truths’ offers an introduction to the practices of Buddhism. Special emphasis is placed on the practice of mindfulness, which involves focusing on one’s thoughts, emotions, and surroundings to be fully present in the moment.

The central practice of mindfulness meditation, which is integral to Buddhism, has been shown to decrease levels of stress and anxiety. You will learn how to calm the mind and relax the body. The course will also teach traditional postures and breathing practices. At the completion of the course, you will have a strong foundation on which to build and develop a meditation practice.

Should participants wish to continue studying at Vidya Method, then the completion of this course would open the door to the many other offerings in the Foundation of Buddhist Thought series. All levels welcome!
