We have a brand new session starting this week! You will now be able to try our free weekly Mindfulness and Meditation at Allen Court. Just like our other class at Ranmoor, our teacher Steve will help us to delve deep into stillness using a variety of techniques including Mantras, Mindfulness, Breath & Body Awareness.

Have you never tried Meditation before? Don’t worry, this class is suitable for beginners as well as for students who have previous experience.

The classes are very practically minded and are geared towards helping people switch off or unplug from their hectic routine. There will always be a firm focus on the right approach to achieve the best results so there will be plenty of practical advice and tips. 

Meditation is not only the best way to step beyond the mind's constant chatter or noise but it also teaches us to watch and accept what is there without any resistance.  It seems that the more we meditate the more distance we create between us and our mind and so over time we become more accepting of ourselves, our lives and other people.

Mindfulness allows us to respond more and react less so that we feel more centred and less stressed out. It truly is an amazing yet simple tool that anyone can use and reap the multiple rewards. Meditation isn't about controlling your mind it is about not letting your mind control you!
