Meditation

Average user rating 4.5 out of 5 stars

What is Meditation? There is no simple answer to that. There are many different types of meditation that have been practiced for centuries by different religious and non-religious traditions. We will be doing probably the best known which is called 'mindfulness of breathing' where you focus on your breath while maintaining an awareness of your body. The objective it to stop yourself becoming dominated by an over active mind and to achieve a calmer mind to set you up for the rest of the day. It is definitely something that gets better with practice.

The session is SUITABLE FOR ANYONE from people who already do meditation regularly to those who are completely new. The group will use a simple format of a 10 minutes brief introduction to meditation and settling down followed by a 15 minute sit involving a short talk through body awareness followed by a 'mindfulness of breathing' with 5 minutes for discussion to see how it went.
