HOW TO MEDITATE

Join us for our newest course in 2020. This 6-week programme is an experiential learning platform where you can explore what exactly is meditation, why are so many people talking about it, why is it now being used in schools and businesses across the world, what is the science behind it, and how can I use it in my work and family life?

Each week you’ll have the chance to experience two meditations, listen to guided explanations by trained facilitators, discuss and ask questions, and receive access to handouts, audio, and PowerPoint slides from each week’s class. You’ll also have the opportunity to follow “at home” exercises in-between classes and receive feedback on your progress.

This course is suitable for beginners or for those with an established meditation practice.

  • Course 1 runs from 6 Jan 2020 – 10 Feb 2020

  • Repeated from 24 February 2020 – 30 March 2020

  • Suggested donation: £6 per session or reduced to £30 for all six sessions if booked advance

  • Monday evenings 6pm-7pm

Use this course to then train your own staff, students, or just use for your own practice.
