Browsing our News page shows what we’ve been doing in previous classes. And if you want to get a flavour of what we do in our classes, take a look at these video clips. Maybe watch one a day, rather than all at once, and send any questions you may have here. Our instructors for this course are Kevin and Mukesh.
Our courses are very suitable for complete beginners. Our instructors have all trained for a minimum of 5 years and they are all friendly and easy to talk to. Our success is based on giving very detailed instructions on how to meditate and having time to answer questions and give specific advice to help you to make progress. See our Testimonials page for comments.
What’s our next course and what does it cover?
The course starting on 15th January is Module 3 of ‘What Meditation Really Is’.
This 5 week course builds on Modules 1 and 2, but also reviews the detailed instructions on how to meditate and so is suitable for complete beginners. These classes will include short meditation sessions, videos, discussions and, of course, a chat over a cup of tea and a biscuit. Each week will consolidate the teaching sessions from the previous week. If you are joining the class for the first time, it would be great preparation if you are able to look at ‘Dare to meditate’ Step 1 – 10 to get a flavour of the meditation we’ll be practising. But if not, don’t worry, we’ll look after you and make sure you have all the information you need to be able to start meditating at home.
Previous Courses: Last term we covered 2 of six modules called ‘What Meditation Really Is’. If you are joining our classes this term, you can have a look at what we covered last term Module 1 , and Module 2.

Is this course suitable for me?
Most people who come to our courses are beginners who have no meditation experience at all, or at least not much. We have met students, teachers, carers, nurses, office workers, managers, social workers, self-employed business people and many more. The reasons they come are varied but most often they are looking for some change, some improvement in their quality of life. We could call it de-stressing or coping, but whatever we call it, it’s about finding some space in which to be more comfortable with ourselves. We can’t always change our circumstances, but we can change how we deal with them. So the people who come to our classes are people like you!
