A place for like minded people to come together and study the art of meditation. Meditation is an art form and like any skill, time is needed to gain mastery. The untrained mind is said to be like a naughty monkey, swinging from tree to tree; but with a bit of skill and a whole lot of patience the mind will begin to settle and insight will grow. Developing a broad, non-judgmental continuous awareness, learning how to work skilfully with difficult emotions and developing positive mind states such as compassion and equanimity.
September 2019 to July 2020 - Every 2nd and 4th Sunday, 7pm - 9pm
This course is a theoretical and practical exploration of The Satipatthana Sutta (The Foundations of Mindfulness). This ancient text has influenced countless meditators through the years and is still as relevant now as it was 2000 years ago. The classes will be a mix of study and meditation, first learning the theory and then applying it to our meditation practice.
Cost £300 – includes all classes, study materials and ongoing support.
18th September – 6th November, Wednesday evenings 7pm-9pm, full day session on Sunday 3rd November 10am-4pm (lunch provided on full day).
This eight week course aims to assist you in taking better care of yourself and get the most out of living by learning to relax, be kind to yourself and ‘BE’ with difficulty and discomfort. MBCT was originally developed to help people ease the pain of depression and anxiety, but over the years it has proved to offer many lasting physical and psychological benefits. Sessions will be a mix of relaxation techniques, meditation theory and practice and exercises designed to help you highlight and reduce general stress levels in your life. The full day practice in week 7 is an opportunity to try out all of the practices we have learnt so far and enjoy a peaceful environment (and a yummy lunch - eaten mindfully, of course).
Cost £225 for sessions, materials & personal support (Early bird price £200 until 31st July)
29th September - 1st December, Sundays 4:30pm-6:30pm
In this 10 week course we will learn ways to develop positive mind states such as love, compassion and forgiveness - both for ourselves and others – while working skilfully with shadow energies like anger, jealousy and addiction. Through a combination of meditation, visualisation, mantra, reflection and discussion we will incline the mind towards more openness and peace.
£220 for sessions, materials & personal support
