Regular meditation practise has been demonstrated to have enormous health benefits. It does this be increasing our awareness of how our habitual thoughts can create suffering and by enhancing positive choices in daily life. Relaxation has massive health benefits because it activates the body’s own healing systems.

This is not therapy, but please bring your experience to the discussion, a lot of learning happens in the conversation within the group. You will be encouraged to carry out daily practise at home in between sessions. It is the daily practice during the course which produces the benefits.

By the end of the course you will be able to...

  • Develop an awareness for daily opportunities to reduce stress
  • Demonstrate a variety of meditation techniques to increase our ability to relax
  • Examine how living in the past and future can be negative
  • Use mindfulness to tune into the present moment to reduce negative habitual thoughts
