Meditation Classes

Welcome to our meditation classes.

Meditation: The evolvement of awareness that leads to the silent knowing of yourself, and beyond.

Encoded into every modality and philosophy of meditation is an experiential exploration of a part of you that most of us spend very little time with: the deep quiet places within. The transformative power of meditation begins with the daily practice of simply stepping into the silence of this still space.

We offer a weekly program of classes that

is open and encouraging to curious beginners while also providing an atmosphere that will deepen and broaden an already established practice.

We are hosting speakers and presenters offering weekend seminars, classes and events. Topics, dates and times will be posted throughout the year.

We look forward to sitting with you!

At the heart of a sitting practice is the aspiration to shift into an awareness that is other than the activity of the worldly mind, an awareness that brings a sense of freedom, enthusiasm, serenity and reflection, an awareness that can awaken deep compassion. Meditation is cumulative. The process is about building a practice with continuity from which a meditative state can arise.  The challenge is maintaining it. The rewards are profound, long reaching and full of wonder.
This class is led by Gael Thompson.
