Learning and support outside the course
An option for ongoing learning and support is to find a meditation group in your area.
Although some regions are more isolated than others, there are a growing number classes offered in community centres, schools, health clinics, yoga schools, churches and other religious and spiritual centres.
Our hope is that your experiences in the course will help you quickly work out whether what they are teaching is congruent with mindfulness or not. Look for classes that embody a sense of listening, respect and openness. It can also be good to look closely at the personal attributes of the teachers/facilitators and any senior students, as this is what you will be cultivating if you practise there.
