Learn to Meditate
Meditation workshop in Maesteg
How to overcome painful emotions and find inner peace through meditation.
This workshop is suitable for complete beginners as well as those with some experience of meditation. We will learn how to start a simple meditation practice, how to bring the resulting peace and positivity into our daily life, and how to overcome negative emotions like anger. There will be two sessions with a tea break in the middle, and in each session there will be guided meditations, a short talk and time for questions and answers. No special clothing is necessary and we will sit on chairs, though if you prefer there will also be meditation cushions available.
