About the School
“In meditation you are learning to be. Just to be, as you are.” (John Main)
There is a radical simplicity to meditation and yet it is not easy. At the School of Meditation, we will help you on a journey to greater self knowledge, bringing more balance, depth and meaning to your life.
As our world is being turned upside down, this time of self-isolating and social distance that we are experiencing could be seen as a kind of extended period of retreat: a voluntary restriction which reminds us of the limited control we have in reality – at any time – over the circumstances of our daily lives. This willing and conscious entering into these limitations can, paradoxically, bring us to an unexpected experience of freedom.
Another way of thinking of our new collective social reality is that we are undertaking an enormous global retreat. Some are following it more attentively than others; some are quite unaware that they are on this retreat; but more and more are quietening down and reflecting. Given that most of our communication and exploration is – for the moment – online, what better time to take part in an online retreat or an online course?
We hope the courses on this website will help you to live more confidently and allow you to continue your journey towards wholeness.
