What Meditation Really Is

Unifying Practice
Tuesday Evenings – 5 week program
Dates:  22 August to 19 September
Time: 7.00pm to 9.00pm

The Unifying Practice brings together the three aspects of body, speech and mind, and is a way of bringing our body, speech and mind into the environment of meditation and the state of non-distraction.

  • First, using the support of looking at an image of Buddha transforms our outer environment and acts on the level of the body.
  • Second, chanting or reciting a mantra is related to the speech and purifies our inner world of sound, emotion and energy.
  • Third, watching the breath pacifies the mind. This may gradually lead to the higher meditation of the innermost nature of mind.

As we practise these methods in a gradual sequence, it enables us slowly to transform our thoughts, emotions and energy, and become steadily more peaceful and more present. When we practise them together in what we call ‘The Unifying Practice’, it brings the three methods together, and ‘unifies’ them, so that we can see their connectedness, and how each one supports the other. This accelerates the process of meditation and deepens the experience, with the result that meditation can happen effortlessly.

Unifying Practice is Module 5 of the ‘What Meditation Really Is’ series of courses.
