Feedback from previous weekend courses
“My practice has made a big difference in my life and relationships with others. I’m calmer, have better concentration and my perception is greater”
“I find the weekend courses invaluable. The content of the course and explanations, life changing.”
“Through practicing this meditation on a regular basis I feel that my anxiety is becoming less and less an issue and that I deal with my anxiety in a more positive way.”
9.30am to 4.30pm with morning and afternoon breaks.
The course involves a sequential series of meditation sessions that introduce the technique. Between each session there will be an opportunity to ask questions, have a short break and stretch. We will have a morning and afternoon tea break, serving herbal tea and an hour lunch break. There will be a ‘yoga nidra’ relaxation session after lunch. Theory will be covered through introductory talks and group discussions about the meditation practice will take place throughout the weekend.
The course teaches the progressive steps of the technique that can be continued as a daily practice or used as a basis for working with the mind more deeply on a residential course.
