Meditation is a simple technique used by millions of people throughout the world where we practice mindfulness to develop a calm and peaceful mind. Meditation reduces stress, anxiety, and other negative states of minds and promotes physical health due to the relationship between our mind and the health of our body. With a peaceful mind we feel a greater joy for life and our relationships with people and the world around us become harmonious.
Meditation brings stillness and time for reflection. When the turbulence of distracting thoughts subsides and our mind becomes still, a deep happiness and contentment naturally arises from within. This feeling of contentment and well-being helps us to cope with the busyness and difficulties of daily life. So much of the stress and tension we normally experience comes from our mind, and many of the problems we experience, including ill health, are caused or aggravated by this stress. By practicing meditation ten or fifteen minutes each day, we will be able to reduce this stress.
If you are new to meditation we recommend our beginners meditation classes on Wednesday evenings, weekday lunch time meditation classes, or simply meditate classes on Sunday evenings. At weekends we hold meditations for world peace and meditation for kids classes. Our meditation for kids classes run simultaneously with our prayers for world peace and allow both parents and children to experience the benefits of meditation.
Our classes are always drop-in and you do not need to book in advance to attend.
