About the Course

This is a course for those who want to learn to meditate from scratch or for anyone who has learned to meditate but would like a more thorough foundation for their practice. Meditation has been proven to have many beneficial effects on our health and wellbeing, including reducing stress, increasing emotional resilience and helping us to respond more creatively to challenges and difficult experiences. Learn to resource yourself and to become more grounded and calm while developing kindness and care towards others and yourself.

Meditation has been proven to have many beneficial effects on our health and wellbeing, including reducing stress, increasing emotional resilience and helping us to respond more creatively to challenges and difficult experiences. Meditation offers a way to resource ourselves and to become more grounded and calm while developing kindness and care towards others and ourselves. Meditation is more than a tool or technique, and practising meditation can have a very positive influence on how we live our lives.

There will be four meditation practices taught on this course: the Body Scan, the Mindfulness of Breathing, the Metta Bhavana (a kindness and compassion practice) and Just Sitting. As well as exploring underlying principles and approaches to meditation, there will be guidance on posture and on setting up a meditation practice. The course will include opportunities to practise together and to learn from shared experience.
