What happens during a meditation session?

There will be some talking but most of the time is spent going through exercises to provide you with the experience of this in practice.

A typical session might cover things like: 

  • Breathing exercises – to calm, slow and steady the breathing for 10 minutes
  • Trying a body scan – finding how our bodies carry stress and comfort
  • Exploring our usual reactions to events and how to develop other ways
  • Discovering new ways of dealing with difficult thoughts and worries, for instance through mental imagery
  • Using physical activity, such as walking meditation
  • Experiencing focused attention – concentrating on looking at a pebble or flower, listening to sounds etc.
