John's approach to meditation teaching

I believe meditation can be a valuable tool for the vast majority of people. As well as helping manage stress it can increase one's sense of wellbeing and provide a fascinating method of self - development.

I have been practising a variety of meditation forms, mostly from the Buddhist tradition, for over twenty years and have been teaching meditation and leading groups for the past eight years.

A few years ago I had the opportunity to lead a short meditation session on TV. This was part of an investigation into the effects of various activities on stress levels for Channel fourís popular science show 'Men in White'.

Day retreats

If there is sufficient interest we may also begin running occasional day retreats for a chance to devote a longer period to meditation practice. Such events would probably run at the weekend.
