Tuesdays 6.00 – 7.00 8th June – 17th July
Pay Online – Meditation classes
Class - Tuesdays 6 - 7 Term - June 8th - July 17th 2020
Would you like to learn to meditate? Anyone can do it and our online meditation classes aim to show you how. We’ll begin with a relaxation exercise followed by a variety of short seated meditations. In between we’ll go through a few movements to strengthen the back and open the hips. As the weeks go by students will become more comfortable in their sitting position thus making it easier to relax and concentrate. Each class will last for 60 minutes.
The online meditation classes will run as a 6 week course and cost £30. There will be a Live Streamed class each Tuesday at from 9th June. The class will be recorded and available to class members throughout the following week. You are welcome to book by email and pay directly or alternatively you can pay below using PayPal.
No experience is necessary – the 6-week course is open to all adults over 18. It’s no exaggeration to say that meditation has changed the lives of many people in profoundly positive ways. Literally anyone can do – even the most fidgety! Often wrongly associated with a religious lifestyle, meditation can bring a peace and calmness into all our lives no matter where you sit on the on the spiritual spectrum. In this short course you will try out 6 different types of meditation – you may enjoy all of them or find a particular one suits you the best.
“The gift of learning to meditate is the greatest gift you can give yourself in this life.”
It’s generally accepted these days that the mind influences the mechanical body functions and the chemical balances within the body. If the mind is disturbed, then it follows that the body becomes disturbed also. Worry, anxiety and resentment restrict the free flow of vital energy around the body which will eventually show up as physical symptoms unless the balance can be restored. This is where meditation comes in – it has been proven to be highly effective in treating the source of these mental disturbances in the psyche which are impenetrable to conventional drug treatment.
There is an interesting article about how Meditation works on the brain on the NHS website here.
What do I need to begin?
It’s traditional to sit on the floor, but you are welcome to sit in a chair if that’s better for you. At first just use cushions, a bath towel and a blanket. Wear loose clothing – anything stretchy is good and have plenty of layers as the body cools down when you are still. In time you may wish to get a meditation stool, soft blocks or a cushion, but it’s best to have a go first and see what works and try out a few meditations.
