Meditation is a valuable approach, suitable for everyone, and can help people cope with medical problems, stress, depression and anxiety by way of thought, awareness, contemplation, and reflection.


It is commonly thought that meditation involves clearing the mind and having absolutely no thoughts. This simply isn’t the case; the brain is not designed to be thought-free. Meditation focuses one’s awareness on an object, an emotion, a thought or physical sensations. Some examples of meditation are awareness of the breath, focusing on a candle flame, walking meditation and yoga practice.


Meditation is not a technique but a way of life and it describes a state of consciousness, when the mind is free of scattered thoughts and various patterns. The meditator realizes that all the activity of the mind is reduced to one.

The end goal of all types of meditation is to lead to a mind that is quieted and free from stress by the use of simple practices of contemplation, awareness and reflection.


It is difficult to learn to meditate without support and instruction which is why we offer a variety of options including one to one instruction, meditation groups, day retreats and mindfulness meditation workshops and courses.
