Exploring Meditation 6-week Course


We believe that meditation is a life skill!

Our Exploring Meditation course runs for six weeks and is designed to provide a  straightforward, practical and non-religious approach to meditation. 

Six weeks gives us a chance to get ‘into the flow’ of meditation, and gain some insight into the benefits found in a regular meditation practice.

What do we do?

The six week program looks something like this (and may vary a little depending on the group and individual interests):

* Week 1 : core meditation principals, the ‘how’ and ‘why’, Body Awareness
* Week 2 : the impact of stress, introduction to short Meditative Exercises & longer techniques (both invaluable), Breath Awareness
 
* Week 3 : the brain, the process of meditation, Mantra and Affirmation practices
 
* Week 4 : obstacles and antidotes, measuring your progress, Mindfulness practices both on the cushion and in daily life 

* Week 5 : settling into your own daily meditation practice, resources, Stillness 
 
* Week 6 : going it alone, meditation resources, and more practice!

Our aim?

We aim to provide you with all that your need to meditate.  Anytime.  Anywhere.

Each weeks class is designed to build on your understanding of meditation, and provide time and focus for group meditation practice.  There is a period of instruction, discussion and PRACTICE.

We also provide a weekly handouts so that you can build a meditation workbook, a resource that you can continue to dip into as your practice develops.

We also share insights, tips and tools that we hope might support your ongoing interest and engagement with your own personal meditation practice.

Class Structure

We limit our classes to ten participants which allows for a nice mix of 'group' and personal attention.

Our venues are chosen for comfort, ambiance and ease of access.  

Our classes can be conducted sitting in a chair or using a cushion on the floor - we often have the ability to provide both options for you to try over the duration of the course.  If you have a mat/meditation cushion or stool then we would encourage you to bring that along.  There are other requirements other than perhaps to bring a bottle of water and to dress comfortably (and warmly as the body cools when deeply relaxed).

Got a question?

We are right here .. email or call if you have any questions.

You might also have a look around our website where you can find a wealth of information and resources.

JUMP IN .. meditation is a LIFE TOOL and we believe that everyone can learn to meditate.

We look forward to meeting you.
