Morning meditation, restart on 5 September

PLEASE NOTE: During the summer period the morning meditations are cancelled. From 24 July until 4 September there are no sessions in the Sports Centre. Starting 5 September we are happy to welcome you again! 

When we begin our day with a morning meditation, we give ourselves the best chance to feel fully aware, awake and alive before we "do" anything. By creating a regular morning routine, we cultivate peace of mind and happy relationships in which we are kinder and less judgmental of ourselves and others

Every Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday between 8:30 and 9:00 a.m. there is a day-start meditation in the Dojo at the Sports Centre.

Beginners and those who have been meditating for some time are welcome. On Tuesdays there is an opportunity (around 8:20) for sitting instruction. We will explore how to sit on a meditation cushion in a way that is comfortable for you.

On Fridays there is room for conversation after meditation. Meditation cushions are available in the dojo. Staff from the Department of Psychology, Health and Technology with experience in various streams (Mindfulness, Vipassana, Zen) of meditation will be guiding the session these mornings. If desired for the group in attendance, guided mediation may be offered.
