An Introduction to Meditation

Drong Ngur Jangchubling is pleased to announce that Virginia Blum will lead an Introduction to Meditation class, every Monday from 7 pm to 815 pm. 

The class will focus on cultivating calm abiding (Skt. Shamatha) meditation. It will follow the traditional Tibetan stages of calm abiding techniques while also incorporating elements of mindfulness practices found in the “Four Foundations of Mindfulness Sutta,” from the Pali Canon. Both beginners and advanced practitioners are welcome to attend. 

Each class will begin with basic instruction and a guided meditation session followed by a brief group discussion or a question and answer session.

In addition to completing the traditional Drikung Kagyu Ngöndro, she has years of extensive meditation training in both solitary and group retreat settings. While her training has been primarily focused on the Tibetan tradition, since 2016 she has also studied and practiced intensively within the Vipassana tradition of early Buddhism and regularly attends month-long meditation retreats at The forest Refuge, IMS and Spirit Rock.

  1. Hello. I would very much love to learn the lifestyle in Buddhism. However you are a bit far from me. Do you teach? Is there a cost?
