About Meditation Instruction
Meditation instruction ought to leave you capable of meditating without any dependence on a teacher, or on an app, or on music. Understanding how your mind interfaces with your experience of reality is part of the learning and motivates us to meditate.
Sitting with others in Meditation
It is good, pleasurable in fact, to sit to meditate with others. No matter where you have learnt to meditate, you may well like to sit in a group with others meditating. Oddly, people meditating together feel very connected, even though meditation is a non-talking practice!
Here are some times at the Blackburn room where you are invited to do just that, without any fee:
Sundays at 8.00am
Fridays at 7.00 pm

Teaching meditation and mindfulness is wonderful work. Training with us is comprehensive and teaches you more about meditation and mindfulness than what you currently know and practice; teach the way you prefer, from the whole scope of meditation and mindfulness.
