‘You have to find out what meditation is. It is a most extraordinary thing to know what meditation is – not how to meditate, not the system, not the practice, but the content of meditation. To be in the meditative mood and to go into that meditation requires a very generous mind, a mind that has no border, a mind that is not caught in the process of time. A mind that has not committed itself to anything, to any activity, to any thought, to any dogma, to any family, to a name – it is only such a mind that can be generous; and it is only such a mind that can begin to understand the depth, the beauty and the extraordinary loveliness of meditation.’[i]
We currently offer several meditation classes at the Kings Road Studio:
The monthly “Grass Roots Shiatsu and Do-In Exercises” weekend sessions from the Shiatsu College Hastings have meditation, visualisation and relaxation built into the session and of course, the moving meditative aspects of Yoga and Qigong are embedded within the disciplines.
Tenzing hosts Mindfulness sessions every Friday at 4.45pm. Mindfulness is an ancient mental tool, particularly prevalent in Buddhism, which pays heightened attention to the present moment, whatever it may be – without prejudice.
Russell offers private Qigong, Tai Chi and Meditation 1-2-1 sessions every Thursday at 9am, tailored to your needs and at your own pace to support your own practise or as an introductory class to help you integrate with the regular 10am class more easily.
Janine runs regular 8-week courses. Coming soon: Mindfulness for Wellbeing (11th Jan – 8th Mar) and Introduction to Zen – Meditation for Insight (22nd Mar – 10th May)
