We all want to feel calmer. It’s probably one of the reasons we started meditating in the first place. But finding calm in our practice is not always so straightforward. Often we have to trust it will arise on its own through sustained periods of concentration, the kind of conditions we usually associate with being on retreat.
So how then can we cultivate it outside of retreats, when we’re agitated and time poor? Are there other methods to bring serenity into our daily lives? Join us this Sunday to explore the simple ways to cultivate serenity (samatha) and how this might offer us a more nourishing and sustainable meditation practice.
