Welcome. We hold a weekly Open Heart Meditation session in Bournemouth on Wednesday evening from 7.30 to about 9.00. As an extra bonus, when time permits this is usually followed by a Reiki Tummo healing. There are many types of meditation techniques and practices ranging from active ones where the practitioner attempts to control their breath, to focusing the mind, to chanting to visualisation. There are also other kinds of meditation that are more passive, where the person meditating just relaxes and tries to calm or still their mind from thinking. All of these meditation techniques are focused at using the brain to ease brain activity, which can be challenging to master for those with an active mind. Unlike traditional meditation, Open Heart Meditation is a remarkably simple, yet effective, heart-based practice that is centred on “feeling” rather than on brain-oriented visualisations or breathing techniques, making this practice purely experiential. Open Heart Meditation has helped many people to reduce their stress level and heal on a deep internal level, enabling them to cope better emotionally and allowing the natural healing process to happen much more quickly. In addition, this practice is universal and non-denominational. This is not a serious practice that involves hard work, creative visualisations or any sort of effort whatsoever. If it is being done properly it should feel light, gentle, peaceful, effortless…and fun! Want to know more?
