Be guided through simple meditations that lead to a deep experience of inner peace and contentment.

These after work classes are perfect ways to unwind and let go of the stresses and strains of the day. They include simple guided meditations that uplift and refresh your mind.

Sessions generally begin with a simple, guided breathing meditation, to calm and relax the mind. This is followed by some simple advice on how to live a happier, more relaxed and positive life and a second guided meditation.

* These sessions are ideal for those wishing to start meditating and for those who want to deepen their existing experience. Although part of a series, the classes are self-contained and no previous experience is required.

* Please feel free to drop in on a class-by-class basis. Classes are held every week unless otherwise stated. No special clothing is required.

Benefits of Meditation


The purpose of meditation is to make our mind calm and peaceful.


If we train in meditation our mind will gradually become more and more peaceful, and we will experience a purer and purer form of happiness.


By training in meditation, we create an inner space and clarity that enables us to control our mind regardless of external circumstances.
