- Free Group Meditation
Feel the Inner Peace
Open to all, prior experience with meditation is not necessary.
Meditation is a universal practice with origins dating thousands of years before the advent of today’s civilization, surviving unchanged as it has passed from generation to generation.
Many people come to the practice of meditation because they feel unfulfilled and empty, with stress and inner restlessness playing a much larger part in their lives than they would like. They may be unsure of what meditation can do, but know it promises relief from the high intensity and fast pace of modern life.
Meditation gives relief and much more. It teaches us that there is a power within each one of us, a peace and a wisdom which we can tap into once we know it is available. This power inspires, reinforces and gives strength to those who seek to grow in a positive direction.
The centre offers free group meditation on a drop-in basis, allowing everyone to benefit from the shared experience of practising meditation. There is 30 minutes of silent meditation, 30 minutes of mantra chanting and a 30 minutes talk on the philosophy of yoga. Meditation in a group is a profound experience. The communal practice of mantra chanting opens the heart and generates harmony and divine love.
That is called 'Yoga'."When the surface of a lake is still you can see the bottom very clearly, but it is impossible to do so when the surface is agitated by waves. In the same way, when the mind is still with no desires and no thought waves you can see your Self."– Swami Vishnudevananda
