About the Course
This introductory course is practical, fun and supportive and equips beginners with a strong foundation upon which meditation and its benefits may more easily become part of routine life. We sit in chairs and discuss topics without dogma or religion. The intention of this course is to share life-changing techniques and practices that can transform your life and experience.
“This Introduction to Meditation and Mindfulness course was exactly what I was looking for to get myself started. I now feel confident that I have the skills to integrate the practice of meditation into my busy life and since starting I feel more in touch with how I think, feel and react, which has meant I am calmer when life is crazy, and I am in control when life is overwhelming. Thanks so much Jen for creating such a wonderful and supportive climate when undertaking this 5 week course!” B. Wright, Beginner’s Course 2018
