U3A Meditation Group meetings are held on Wednesdays, from 2 pm until 3.30 pm. The cost is minimal, and the group atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. There is no age restriction, but group members must be either retired or semi-retired from paid employment. The aim of the group is to promote relaxation, serenity and personal insight; the meditation is taught and guided by Chris North (a vastly experienced independent meditation teacher who taught meditation on a voluntary basis for the National Health Service for a number of years) and is very easy to learn. The meditation and supporting relaxation procedures do not involve anything strange – we sit on ordinary chairs, there is no chanting, and no religious or philosophical beliefs are necessary.
Anyone interested is very welcome to contact Chris on 01509 506585 and he will provide further details.
