Course descriptions

Meditation for busy people – May Course

Do you ever feel that you are too busy to meditate? You just have too much to do and meditation just slips down the list of priorities?

On this course we will explore how we can encourage ourselves to make time for daily meditation and build it into our daily life no matter how much we’ve got going on.
