What we're about

For anyone interested in expanding their understanding and experience of different forms of meditation (whether you already have a meditation practice or not), particularly mindfulness and Transcendental Meditation

Anyone already interested in meditation will know that there are many different practices, all with different positive effects. The type of meditation you practice will depend on what results you are looking for at that point in time.

Research indicates three main categories of meditation:

1. Focused Attention or concentration techniques (e.g. Zen, Qi gong, Vipassana)

2. Open Monitoring (including mindfulness-based techniques)

3. Automatic Self-Transcending (AST) (e.g. Transcendental Meditation)

This meet up is open to anyone already practising any of these techniques, with the experience of group meditation really speeding up your progress. You will also get to meet even more like minded people and join them for some social events.

You will get to learn more about the third category of meditation, which, through the absence of concentration or control (‘Automatic’ means innocence is the key), has the particularly profound effect of allowing the mind to transcend (go beyond the surface level of the mind) very easily, even transcending the steps of the meditation practice itself! We therefore see a unique effect in the brain - Alpha brain waves (characteristic of reduced mental activity and relaxation) permeate the whole brain, which receives more oxygen, and increased blood flow to the front (which is coordinating activity) while the core of the brain is more quiet, indicating alertness in the midst of deep rest, the state of transcendental or pure consciousness (pure silence!). From this source of thought we spontaneously return to activity with the dynamic power of silent, restful alertness which then supports all our thought, speech and action and thereby produce a great range of mental, physical and spiritual benefits as indicated by research.
