The Centre for Spiritual Living is conducting an eight-week meditation course entitled Meditation Is More Than You Think.

So, you think you know meditation

A sampler of meditation methods is being offered by the Centre for Spiritual Living

A sampler of meditation methods is being offered by the Centre for Spiritual Living, starting on Monday, December 3 at 6 p.m.

Unlike “branded” meditation courses, this eight-week course will survey eight different meditation techniques, offering instruction and experience in each one, so participants can choose which ones are most appealing to them personally.

Entitled “Meditation is More than You Think,” and facilitated by Spiritual Director Jill Brocklehurst, the course will cover methods based in colour, guided imagery, breathing, movement, writing, chanting, mantra, and Big Mind.

The many physiological and mental benefits of meditation have recently been confirmed scientifically, inspiring increased interested in learning to meditate. Results of a regular meditation practise have been shown to include increased awareness and concentration, lowered blood pressure and stress levels, better digestion, and improved memory.

Course fee is $200, and financial assistance is available. The course will meet at the Centre for Spiritual Living classroom, #20, 964 Shoppers Row. To register, or for more information, call (250) 850 3064 or e-mail
