Meditate in Paisley

With Jon Murray

NEW 4 Week Course Starts April 10th
Wednesdays 8.15-9.30pm
Starlight Music Theatre, 16 Wellmeadow Street, PA1 2EE
Meditations for Relaxation | Apr 10, 17, 24, May 1

If our mind is peaceful, we will be free from worries and mental discomfort and so we will experience true happiness and relaxation. But if our mind is not peaceful, we will find it very difficult to be happy and relaxed even if we are living in the very best conditions.

On this course you will learn three forms of breathing meditation that help to calm the mind, reduce stress, and give rise to an experience of inner peace and wellbeing.
