Weekly Meditation Practice Meetings
Every Tuesday 7pm throughout the year at Shanti Sadan (Directions)
These are guided meditation sessions, with which beginners can start and experienced meditators can progress.
Each includes a set of meditation practices, which we could take up regularly for ourselves.
They are based on the non-dual understanding of our deeper nature. The aim is to bring to light the wholeness and security of our inner being.
These are the practices we are currently doing at these meetings.
Here is a recording of a recent session including these practices, which we could follow for our own daily meditation.

Summer 2017 Afternoon Course
Sunday 11 June 1.30-4.30pm
Lecture Room, City Art Gallery, Mosley Street, Manchester M2 3JL. (Directions)
The Reality within all is a transcendent unity. The traditional way of non-dual understanding and Self-discovery leads us towards realization of this identity, where we may find peace, upliftment and fulfilment that nothing can ever take away.
The first talk will explain the essential ideas of non-duality and how we can bring out the higher potentials in our own mind and thus find lasting happiness and fulfilment.
This will be followed by a guided meditation session using breathing practice, visualization and affirmation of our inner freedom.
The second talk is on the actual identity of the individual and the universal, and the traditional ways of dispelling the obstacles that obscure the bliss of our own higher being. The talk will be interspersed with further traditional meditation practices, through which sincere seekers from all times and places have been led to Self-realization.
Talk 1: Towards Inner Freedom
Guided Meditation Practice
Talk 2: True Knowledge is Self-Knowledge
