What is meditation?
Wikiepedia desciption of meditation
Group meditation at the Centre is guided meditation, with the group sitting together in a circle and the group leader guiding the group to a state of relaxation. The method we use involves leading the group through relaxation techniques to put their physical body to “sleep” and close their mind off from everyday thoughts, so as to raise their vibration thus developing their spirituality. Following a meditation session, time is given for the group to write down their own personal thoughts or feelings, before they are given the opportunity to share or discuss experiences with the group if they wish.
What are the benefits of meditation?
When practised regularly meditation can lower blood pressure and heart rate, and is said to be more beneficial than two hours sleep. It can relieve stress, strengthen self control and in the east it is even claimed that regular mediation practice can eliminate disease.
Can I learn meditation at the centre?
Yes. New members are welcome to join a mediation group, who meet on the third Sunday of every month, at 6pm. There is no commitment to come regularly and no previous experience is necessary (£3 fee charged to cover running costs).
At the Deal centre we are fortunate to have trainee mediums, who attend group meditation sessions for the purpose of developing their mediumship further – they do this by observing each person as they meditate and noting what they see, hear or feel spiritually. Hence often sitters will receive short messages from the spirit world following a group meditation.
Meditation is practiced at all workshops held at the Centre by Wendy: each session includes group meditation with spiritual messages from the attending mediums.
Can I practice meditation at home?
Yes. Although group meditations are beneficial in that an instructor is on hand to explain what you have experienced, and the energy generated within the group can enhance the experience – however, practicing meditation wherever you are is beneficial. Many people find that is helps to focus their concentration if they follow a guided meditation using a CD. For this purpose, Wendy has prepared a CD entitled A Journey to Bliss, which can be ordered and sent to you if you cannot attend the Centre.
