Every two weeks a professional meditation teacher will guide a meditation session for us!

Every teacher has a different style and a different perspective on things, so this will be a really nice opportunity for our community to broaden its perspective and get to know different styles of teaching :)

The day / time of these guided meditations will vary each time, but will replace one of our usual meditations.

Our upcoming invited teacher is Upasaka Upali!

Date: Saturday 15th of May
Time: 17:00 until 18:00
Contents: Guided meditation
Location: Zoom! We will send the link in this chat on the day of the session :)
Price: Dana (aka donation or generosity) - Upali is giving his time out of generosity.  Once the class is over, you're invited to donate to Upali in a way that feels generous for you but also inviting for you to attend class.
For who: Everyone is welcome!

About Upali
This week's teacher invite is a very special one, as Upali is a very well known and respected meditation teacher in the western world. Not only that, he has also received transmission in a lineage that can be traced back to the Buddha!

Also, most of our beginners’ courses are based on the book ‘The Mind Illuminated’. Upali has studied meditation with the writer of this book: Culadasa.

Formally known as Paul Peterson, he took his Upasaka vows in 2015 and is now known as Upasaka Upali. Currently, Upali teaches a style of meditation in which they aim to combine ancient techniques and modern cognitive science. He also continuously studies meditation intensively, doing 3 to 5 solo retreats in the wilderness each year in addition to an annual 10-day silent retreat next to his daily practice.
