Q. What should I bring with me to a class, and what should I wear?

A. Wear something that is comfortable, and nothing too restrictive to movement if possible. Chairs will be provided, but feel free to bring a mat if you would prefer to lie down for meditations. You may wish to bring something to help you feel more comfortable, such as a cushion or light blanket. It’s a good idea to bring a bottle of water.

 

Q. Is meditation just the latest fad?

A. Not at all. Although meditation may be gaining more attention and popularity lately, it is certainly not a passing fad. Meditation has a long history, and can be traced back through many religions, different countries and cultures, and possibly even back to the times of ‘cave people.’

 

Q. Can meditation really help me?

A. Personally, meditation and mindfulness have helped me a great deal with pain management, anxiety, and OCD. Read through my ‘About Me’ page for further details. Although the occasional meditation/mindfulness class could certainly help to make you feel more relaxed afterwards, I would recommend implementing a daily practice of your own to really reap the rewards to mental and physical health that meditation and mindfulness can offer. (However, please be advised that meditation is not a substitute for necessary medical or mental health care).

 

Q. Do I need to be able to sit in the lotus position, or need lots of experience?

A. No, you don’t need to be able to sit in the lotus position. You can sit, or lie down, in a way that feels most comfortable for you. No previous experience is necessary for you to join a beginners’ course, though some experience may be assumed if signing up for an intermediate course. See course details for further information.

 

Q. I’ve been to meditation classes before and it wasn’t really for me...

A. My courses look at a number of different types and techniques of meditation in an effort to help you find something that will work for you. Lots of people have a ‘favourite’ type of meditation, and a type that they don’t get on so well with. But I believe that you are more likely to commit to a daily practice if you can tailor your meditation practice to YOU. This is why I aim to explore different types and techniques – to give you the chance to see what works for you and what may not.
