Tawa Meditation & Spiritual Discussion Group
Presented by Ian, Alicia, Michele
Meditations are guided by meditators with many years experience to help you develop your own practice. Meet like minded people who meditate, and discuss spiritual matters over tea.
These informal weekly groups have been running for over 5 years. We start with meditation followed by a spiritual philosophy discussion with tea and finish with a guided visualization. The discussion is on any topic such as the synthesis of science and consciousness, Buddhism, your own suggestions, etc. The meditations are non-secular and cover teachings from different traditions. They're augmented by a short chant (e.g. Aum) on the chakra we're working with for the evening. This helps calm the mind before a mainly guided meditation.
"...each time I attend a meditation course or retreat with them, I walk away feeling more myself. In such a relaxing and peaceful environment led by experienced meditators it’s easy to refocus on what really matters and let the unimportant things go...Indigo “
“...anyone looking for a meditation course, from novice to experienced, will find this helpful and welcoming. I’ve learnt a greater awareness of becoming mindful in this human experience and how integrated all of life is. This is a non-religious and spiritually aware group, which has taught me to live with less fear and reduced negative thoughts. This allows for greater calmness, compassion and love to myself and others... Colleen”
“…I’ve been on many of Ian’s meditation courses. I always leave feeling happy and head back to work with lots of positive energy. I’ve particularly loved finding that I’ve slowly but surely increased my levels of happiness over the last 4 years since participating in his weekly meditation groups and weekend retreats. Ian makes new meditators feel very welcome, whether they’ve never meditated before or have meditated for years. The spiritual discussion part of the evening, which is as varied as the participants, is always enlightening…Michele”
