Why I Keep Meditating

Meditating isn’t exciting. It sometimes feels like hard work, especially as winter approaches and mornings can be cold and bed is so yummy! And yet I’m very committed to it and would hate to be without it. Why?

For me meditation gives me the best chance of finding positive, life giving responses to …. well …. everything. It helps me sort myself out in a very basic, fundamental way. And you’ll probably agree that life regularly throws up situations that challenge us in so many different ways …. . So how do I find responses that are truly in accord with reality and that conduce to peace and happiness?

It’s not a quick fix. It’s just a very tried and true way to slow down, stop and contemplate clearly what our life is and how best to live it.

I hope you can join us for meditation this week:

Tuesday evening     6.30 - 7.30 pm

Sunday morning      8 - 9 am

PS: Heads up that I plan to show ‘Minimalism’ an awesome and very positively provocative film about living more simply on Saturday June 2nd 7 pm at the Croquet Club - I’d love you to join us so please put the date in your diary if interested

Here’s the trailer:
