What is Meditation?

“Silence is a great help to a seeker after truth.  In the attitude of silence the soul finds the path in a clearer light and what is elusive and deceptive resolves itself into crystal clearness.”
~ Gandhi 

Meditation is a simple, practical tool which helps you experience more clarity and happiness.   Clinical research has shown that the regular practice of meditation improves mental and physical well-being.

This powerful traditional meditation, which involves observation of the natural breath, calms and purifies the mind, leading to peace, clarity and positivity.  It develops awareness and helps you to improve concentration so that you are more effective in everyday life.  The technique was taught by Buddha, Patanjali and Shankara.

Mary teaches individually or in small groups.  There are 6 sessions to learn the technique. Each session lasts about two hours and includes meditation instruction and practice, some theory and the opportunity to ask questions and discuss experiences.

Mary has been trained to teach meditation by Kumar, a yoga master from India with 35 years of advanced meditation experience and she regularly organises and  attends meditation retreats in the UK and India.

Comments from recent students:

“I feel more centered and confident that I can handle new situations calmly with this inner resource. It gives an inner strength and knowledge that you can be comfortable on your own in your own space. It feels as though it is building a strength in being calm, building my “calm muscle”. 

“The classes were extremely warm and welcoming and everything was explained so clearly and at times very humorously. They felt like very open sessions where the students’ suggestions and input were as important as the teaching. I came away from the classes feeling tranquil and excited about seeing a glimpse of something great that I’m exploring more now, and that feels so necessary to have been introduced to.”

“Meditation has brought a totally new aspect to my life. In the short time since I learned to meditate I have developed a greater awareness of how I interact with other people and my relationships have improved. I have a totally new perspective on life. I am far less reactive and have a lot more confidence. A lot of tension has gone and I feel so much better. People keep telling me how well I look and asking what I have done. The difference is remarkable! “
I sense that this will grow as I continue to meditate. There is a feeling of lightness after meditation and I have more clarity.”
