It is easy to practice meditation when we understand what meditation means and how to verify the results. Due to a lot of information from different sources and various techniques it often gets confusing to decide which method to adapt.

In this session we break down the practice into two parts, theory and practice. In the theory part we will have an interactive discussion where we explore the meaning of meditation, based on the outcome we will choose a technique spontaneously to suit the occasion. We end the session with sharing our experience from the practice.

This session is suitable for beginners as well as regular practitioners to connect with like minded people and share this joy together.

About the instructor:

Sundar’s practice of meditation started 9 years ago to fulfill the burning desire to realize his true self. In his passion to explore he was introduced to different traditions and methods of meditation. He loves to share his passion with interested people and has the ability to explain complex concepts in simple ways
