A method for cultivating inner stillness and peace

Bookings are now open for the School of Practical Philosophy's 'Meditation: Introductory Course' this May. All are welcome to join in and discover how meditation leads to a greater sense of fulfilment and satisfaction.

Meditation is regarded as the master key to full realisation and the most important factor in spiritual development. This course consists of eleven insightful sessions focusing on the practice of meditation and the reasons why one should meditate every day.

Under the guidance of the knowledgeable School of Practical Philosophy tutors, students will look at the simplicity of the meditation technique, how to overcome barriers and still an over-active mind through the use of an ancient and effective exercise and also explore the proper use of the intellect with a glance at the causal aspect of the mind and its predispositions.

The meditation is introduced with a time honoured ceremony which will take place on Week 8 and during this ceremony a gift of money is made by the student, according to the means of each student.
