This meditation class offers a chance to step out of your busy day and stop for a short time to create some space and calm in your mind and develop a positive thought to carry back into the rest of your day.

We can think that we are too busy to stop but you will be surprised to see that the busyness and tension can reduce in a short time.  Through seeing this we will begin to understand that the stress and tension we can often feel are not as solid and fixed as we think.  Gradually we can learn to let go of the sense of pressure and tension we feel much more easily and instead deal with the difficulties and situations we encounter from a more balanced and wise space.

Why not give it a try!

Why Meditate?

“The purpose of meditation is to make our mind calm and peaceful.  When the turbulence of distracting thoughts subsides and our mind becomes still, a deep happiness and contentment naturally arise from within.  This feeling of well-being and contentment helps us to cope with the busyness and difficulties of daily life.  So much of the stress and tension we feel comes from our mind, and many of the problems we experience, including ill health, are caused or aggravated by this stress.  Just by doing breathing meditation for 10 or 15 minutes each day, we will be able to reduce this stress.”
