Then the meditation society may be the place for you. Our society meets every Tuesday evening in CB 4.8 at 6:30pm and every Thursday evening in CB 4.5 at 6:30pm for hour long sessions. Come along to one of our sessions each week (you can come to both but it will be the same topic) it's a great opportunity to learn how to meditate and gain some control over your thoughts and emotions.
Our teacher this year will be Sharon Collins, an experienced meditator and mindfulness practitioner who has been leading the sessions at MedSoc for 3 years now. Based in Bath, Sharon has spent the last eleven years studying meditation (primarily based on Buddhist scripture), and has been teaching for nine years. Her classes are relaxed, informal, and accessible to all. Based on personal experience, she shares the benefits of meditation and mindfulness with her students, and gives practical guidance on how they can apply them in their own lives, in order to enhance their mental well-being, improve their relationships, and perform to their full potential.
We hope to have a few social evenings throughout the year as well.
If you would like to join, please sign up! It's free this year!
Reasons to Join Us
Meditation is simply a method of training our mind to get beyond the reflexive, "thinking" mind into a deeper state of awareness. When the turbulence of distracting thoughts subsides and the mind becomes still, a deep contentment and sense of "knowing" arise naturally from within. If you decide to meditate regularily you will find a renewed outlook on life - a more appreciative lens on which to view the world!
Our sessions are aimed at discovering the practice of meditation, along with the timeless wisdom that traditionally accompanies it.
Here is a great article that will give you a great introduction to mindfulness meditation.
