Cost:No Charge 
     
The event runs from 7am to 7pm and the meditation for the day is whichever personal practice you are currently doing. The day is divided into twelve, one hour slots so you can choose a time(s) convenient for you. Just like previous 12 hour meditation days, if you haven't had that much experience with meditation then its fine to come along and just do however long you feel comfortable for. The meditation day will be concluded at 6.30pm with a guided 16th Karmapa Meditation. Sign up sheet for meditation times and the meal afterwards @ The Gurkha Kitchen is on the notice board in the centre. ☺

Sat Mar 29th Open House Invitation  
10-12amWhere:Exeter Diamond Way Buddhist Centre 
Cost:Free 
To coincide with our 10th anniversary, we will be having a couple of hours during the day for an "open house" invitation. There is no charge for the session as it is designed to give the opportunity for people to experience a guided Tibetan Buddhist meditation first hand.
Program:
In typical Exeter centre style it begins with a warm welcome and a cup of tea. ☺ We then start with a 10 minute introduction to Buddhism which gives some insight into Diamond Way Buddhism and how it fits into the overall Buddhist tradition. This is followed with a short overview of the 16th Karmapa meditation and includes some basic advice on meditation techniques. We then can have the guided meditation which will last about 20 minutes.
Any questions you may have can be answered after the meditation in a relaxed manner whilst having more refreshments.☺ The introduction, explanation and meditation will take about 45 minutes and you need to bring nothing except yourselves. If you are interested in joining us then please come and see us and hopefully benefit from the experience.
