It's been said that the aim of beginning meditation is not so much to stop your thoughts as it is to learn to become the watcher of your thoughts. The rushing thoughts of our mind can lead us to think that we are not "meditation material" when in fact they are demonstrating that we very much are.

The practise of meditation gives space, so that you can gain some distance from the constant chatter of your thoughts. You become aware that there is a "you" who sits behind those thoughts, like a ledge behind a waterfall. That ledge becomes a peaceful space from which over time you can learn to quieten the raging waters and find peace.

Kadampa Meditation Centre Australia is a Buddhist temple set in the tranquil environs of Monbulk in the Dandenong Ranges and which runs regular meditation courses throughout the year.

Beginning Monday, 14 January resident teacher Gen Kelsang Dornying will teach the Learn to Meditate course. Running for six weeks, it is the perfect introduction to the practice and way of meditation.

Regular classes also run throughout the year on Mondays evenings, Wednesdays and Wednesday evenings and can be viewed here.

This is the best buddhist meditation group I have come across, and it would be well worth going along to this or one of the weekly classes! Highly recommended!
