A Calm Mind is a Healthy Mind
Samatha (Sanskrit), Shyiné (Tibetan) means quality of mind which is developed by calming it. This is done by practicing single-pointed meditation, most commonly through mindfulness of breathing. During Samatha the whole focus is on a particular subject, image, etc., the goal is to maintain concentration without distraction.
With samatha practice, we can develop deeper wisdom and insight. It also can be beneficial to us in daily life. We are able to ground ourselves during our days, rest in a state of ease, and decrease our levels of anxiety and stress. Samatha practice over time can lead us to a state of increased calmness.
The practice will be led by a student of the Tibetan teacher of meditation and Buddhist philosophy Péma Rinpoché, founder of the Bulgarian meditation center "Palyul" (palyul.eu/bulgaria).
The practice includes: theoretical and practical meditation activities and breathing exercises. Do not worry, you do not need any experience neither in meditation, nor in breathing exercises. Basically, everyone can join the practice.
The practice lasts 60 minutes. Wearing comfortable clothes is preferable.
