Then the meditation society may be the place for you. Our society meets every week on Tuesday evenings. Come along to one of our sessions, they are a great opportunity to learn how to meditate and gain some insight into the thoughts and emotions you have.
Our teacher, Sharon Collins, is an experienced meditator and mindfulness practitioner who has been leading the sessions at MedSoc for 5 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 such as movie nights, skyline walks and or even just casual coffee meetups :)
Reasons to Join Us
Meditation is simply a method of training our mind to get beyond the reflexive, "thinking" mind, and 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.
