What we're about

This Meetup group is hosted by the Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University (UK). We teach Raja Yoga as a way of experiencing peace of mind and a positive approach to life. In addition, we provide a number of events, talks, workshops and seminars for people from all religious and cultural backgrounds to explore their own spirituality and learn life skills of reflection and meditation, derived from Raja Yoga. This has helped thousands of people across the UK develop inner calm, clear thinking and personal well-being.

The group will be promoting the events and activities at Inner Space, Manchester. Find out more about us at our website: www.brahmakumaris.org/uk/manchester.

Special Event ::: Dealing with Demands in Relationships

Friend Meeting House

Do you feel under pressure in your relationships? Real life relationships do require a certain amount of ‘work’, in the form of time, listening, helping, or just ‘being there’. But the feeling of being overburdened can be a sign that something is out of balance. Whether you need to give more to yourself, release your need to be needed or ask for help yourself, making such changes can return relationships to the fulfilling exchange they are meant to be. About the speaker: Sister Maureen Goodman is based in Global Cooperation House in London. She is Programme Director of the Brahma Kumaris, UK. She is also Area Coordinator for BK centres and activities in Scotland and Wales. A major part of her work is with community groups, developing outreach work in prisons, healthcare, education, women’s issues, and inter-religious dialogue.
