These classes are open to everyone. It doesn’t matter what your religion, race, age or proficiency in meditation is. The meditation technique used consists of focusing our attention on our natural breath and being aware of our breath. This meditation technique helps to bring self awareness, in a natural way.
These classes will begin with a short relaxation exercise and then lead onto guided instructions for awareness of breathing meditation. Recently, I have been using the relaxing sounds of crystal singing bowls at the beginning and/or end of the session. I have found that these sounds help to naturally induce a state of relaxation and meditation. .
Instructions will be given in each session, so beginners are not left out. These classes will run roughly for one hour and include 45 minutes of meditation practice and a short period of time for any questions and/or group discussion.
I invite people to meet up in the café downstairs if they wish after the meditation class. Here we can all talk and get to know each other.
Experienced meditation practitioners may start their practice with or without instructions. These sessions will also allow meditators to practice their own meditation techniques or to intuitively be, along as it doesn’t disturb others. The intention is to create a supportive space for insight and transformation of oneself, through the use of meditation techniques.
These classes are free of charge and will be funded by any donations given by participants. Donations will be welcomed at the classes. However, there is no obligation to give. These classes are free to ensure no one cannot attend due to financial circumstances. Also, I wish to share this information freely to whoever may be interested.
You may meditate on the chairs provided. If you prefer to meditate sitting on the floor, then please bring your own mat and cushions.
