Morning meditation

Starting tomorrow, you can participate in morning sessions meditation. You don't need to register to join the sessions.

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.
