You are invited to a day of meditation in the
peaceful surroundings of the Sakya Buddhist Centre, Bristol.

The sessions are open to all (children aged 14 and over welcome when accompanied by an adult)
It is free - donations welcome to cover the Centre's costs
Light refreshments will be provided. Please bring lunch to share
No experience is needed and there is no need to book- just come along to as many sessions as you wish:

Session 1: 10:30-11:30 - tea. Session 2: 12:00-13:00 - lunch.
Session 3: 14:00-15:00 - tea. Session 4: 15:30-16:30.

The day will be run by students of Lama Jampa Thaye, the Spiritual Director of the Sakya Buddhist Centre. We will use
the instructions for meditation given in his book ‘Diamond Sky: A Brief Introduction to the Buddhist Path’. This book
provides a profound, step-by-step introduction to Buddhist meditation, including the practice of calm-abiding, where
we learn to settle the mind until it rests naturally in stillness – a prerequisite for developing insight and wisdom.
