With a more open and relaxed mind we will have less stress resulting from our living situation, and less tendency to be thrown by the ups-and-downs that life presents.</p> <p>This course is aimed for people who are new to meditation and will give them the techniques and understanding to establish an ongoing and fruitful practice of calm abiding meditation. It will include <strong>posture, relaxation, breathing</strong> and other meditation essentials. A regular meditation practice can bring a greater sense of inner peace and can help to calm an overactive mind, as well as bring more understanding in a deeper sense of who we are.</p> <p>This is a weekly course taking place <strong>every Wednesday evening for 4 weeks</strong> from 19.00 and 20.30 and <em><strong>we ask that praticipants attend all four classes</strong></em>.
