There are many types of meditation techniques taught by various traditions. The meditation techniques we teach consist of two simple but effective practices drawn from the Buddhist tradition. The pair complement each other and can be learned by anyone. You don't have to be a Buddhist to benefit from them!
The first is called the 'Mindfulness of Breathing', and is designed to help you calm you mind and integrate your energies. The second is called the 'Development of Loving Kindness' (traditionally known as the 'Metta Bhavana') and helps to develop a strong positive concern for your own welfare, and the welfare of others.
Meditation helps us change the way we relate to ourselves and the world. If you suffer from stress, you can learn to calm down. If you are anxious, you can learn to relax. If anger is an issue for you, you can learn to let go. If you are shy, you can develop confidence.
The main thing we learn is that we have a choice about what we think and feel. Meditation empowers us to choose. And if you are searching for the answers to deeper questions in your life, meditation can help along the way.
Our meditation classes are run in five-week cycles and run from 10.30-12.45pm. Class size is limited so do book early to avoid disappointment.
