What will be explored

Meditation is a means of transforming the mind. It helps us change the way we relate to ourselves and the world around us.

Buddhist meditation techniques offer a way of encouraging and developing positive states of mind, such as calmness, clarity, emotional positivity and a deeper seeing of the true nature of things.

On these taster sessions you will get a brief introduction to both the Mindfulness of Breathing and the Development of Loving Kindness meditations. It will be ideal as an taster for those new to meditation, or thinking about coming along to the Centre but are unsure.

The cost

There is no charge for these taster sessions.
