About our Meditation classes

What is meditation?

In meditation, we try to make the mind calm and quiet. By, making the mind quiet, we can become aware of our inner stillness, and our inner peace. Meditation is our conscious journey of self-discovery.

How to meditate

In the classes, you will learn different meditation techniques, these include concentration, breathing, mantra and the use of music for meditation. The aim is to be aware of the present moment, away from our restless thoughts, and to create a space where our inner joy can come to the fore.
