Course Themes

Techniques of Meditation

Meditation includes techniques such as listening to the breath, repeating a mantra, or detaching from the thought process, to focus the attention and bring about a state of self awareness and inner calm.


The 'mindfulness' component of this course is, above all, experiential. It consists of: establishing a personal practice, exploring the underlying core concepts and teaching participants how to guide meditations within the secular context of a course of mindfulness.

Health and Psychological Benefits

The relaxation and reduction of stress that are claimed to result from meditation/mindfulness may have prophylactic and therapeutic health benefits. Many research papers claim to show this.
