Lama Brian Meditation Teacher


The Nine Stages of Shamatha in person with Lama Brian Hilliard

Discover that you already have the treasure you need to live a completely fulfilled life. Join Lama Brian for this foundational yet in-depth course, that draws on Buddhist thought to explore a traditional path of meditation.

Each of the 9 stages of Shamatha (resting the mind) provide extraordinary instructions that you can immediately put into practice.

The goal of the course is to have glimpses of unconditional happiness, and from these experiences set out on a journey towards liberation.

As you progress through each stage, you will learn to cultivate equanimity in your meditation practice and everyday life.

Throughout this course, emphasis is placed on instruction that helps you to be open, spacious and relaxed to encourage you to develop inner strength, stabilise your mind and find freedom from turmoil.

From Lesson 1: Giving the Monkey Mind a Rest

In the first lesson, you will be introduced to the three instructions for the practice of shamatha: posture, breath and working with the thinking mind.

By following the meditation instruction you will be able to calm your busy mind. The first stage of realisation occurs when you become aware of just how wild the untamed mind is.

Learn to see how the wild mind is seen as the source of all of our stress, anxiety, worry and suffering. There is a glimpse of peace (shamatha) through bringing ourselves back to the breath.
