What is meditation?
Meditation is a natural method used to cultivate and experience inner peace and happiness in our lives. Through meditation, we can learn to generate and hold, positive states of mind, and in doing so, identify, reduce and finally abandon the negative mental habits that are the causes of many of life’s problems.
How will meditation benefit me?
Meditation has many benefits and practical applications, through its use, we can gradually become more peaceful, experiencing a greater degree of genuine happiness in our lives. Many modern day problems such as stress, anger, impatience and poor inter-personal relationships can be addressed and greatly improved through meditation.
Do I need to be fit and flexible to meditate?
Whilst some people choose to meditate in the traditional cross-legged position, all of our meditation classes are primarily done from the comfort of a chair. For this reason, no special clothes or equipment are necessary, and you don’t have to be physically fit, flexible or have previous experience in meditation.
