“Meditation does not mean just sitting quietly for five or ten minutes. It requires conscious effort. The mind has to be made calm and quiet. At the same time, it has to be vigilant so as not to allow any distracting thoughts or desires to enter. When we can make the mind calm and quiet, we will feel that a new creation is dawning inside us. When the mind is vacant and tranquil and our whole existence becomes an empty vessel, our inner being can invoke infinite peace, light and bliss to enter into the vessel and fill it. This is meditation.” Sri Chinmoy
About our Meditation classes
What is meditation?
In meditation, we try to make the mind calm and quiet. By, making the mind quiet, we can become aware of our inner stillness, and our inner peace. Meditation is our conscious journey of self-discovery.
How to meditate
In the classes, you will learn different meditation techniques, these include concentration, breathing, mantra and the use of music for meditation. The aim is to be aware of the present moment, away from our restless thoughts, and to create a space where our inner joy can come to the fore.
