Meditation sessions

Come and enjoy the benefits of Mindfulness of breathing Meditation or heart-warming Loving Kindness Meditation within the buzz of working life! Sessions are held every Monday at lunch times (12:15pm-12:45pm) and Thursday mornings (07:15am-07:45am) in Rosie seminar room 5 and are guided by Suryamani Layton.

Suryamani (Surya) is an experienced meditator and guides you through a gentle body awareness before leading you through either a loving kindness meditation or a mindfulness of breathing meditation. Surya has an emphasis on dwelling more simply in the present, and in a relaxed and embodied way we gain a growing understanding of how our minds operate.

Thoughts, feelings and body sensations can change just by more awareness, or they can be developed and we can gently encourage self-confidence, genuine positive thinking and a deeper peace in being who we are at this very moment. This can have a direct positive impact on our connection with others too.

These sessions are completely free open to all and drop-in sessions- there is no need to book. Please just turn up and give it ago.
