Exeter Meditation Circle
Mindful meditation & enquiry within a secular Buddhist framework
Exeter Meditation Circle began in 2016. We meet on a weekly basis.
Our meetings focus on the practice of mindful meditation – paying attention without judgment, commentary or clinging – as a way of exploring who we are and how we relate to the world. By developing mindful awareness in all aspects of our everyday life we cultivate understanding, enjoyment, peace of mind and compassion for ourselves and others.
Our meetings are simple and non-ritualistic, non-dogmatic and free of attachment to any particular teacher or tradition. We particularly draw on contemporary research into the ideas and methods of the historical Buddha and into the questions he poses for us.
Our aim is to understand how things are (Dharma) by paying attention to our own experience – learning to live in harmony with a world of constant interaction, change and uncertainty.
The process of awakening is a process of learning, in this sense we are all students and teachers, helping each other to grow in understanding.
As we sit in a circle in silent mindful meditation we experience the interconnectedness and equal importance of everyone. Together we develop a secular Buddhist way of life that is of our time and place.
