Having had to cancel a number of in person events due to the global pandemic we are excited to now offer our introductory workshop, via Zoom 🙂
Meditation is one of the most effective ways to generate a sense of inner peace and calm, despite the turbulence in the world around us, and Heart Meditation provides particular benefits, some of which are outlined below. In this 90 minute session we will provide a foundation to help you start your own Heart Meditation practice at home.
We hope you can join!
*This event is FREE. Please register to confirm your place and we will send the Zoom link before the workshop*

SOME BACKGROUND INFO ON THE WORKSHOP
What is Heart Meditation?
All of us in our busy lives are in search of inner peace. The quest for inner peace has indeed been the beginning of many methods and meditation techniques. In reality inner peace can only be achieved through a calm and clear connection between our mind and heart.
It is with this connection in mind that many centuries ago teachers on the path of inner peace created a meditation technique which, through the use of ancient rhythms, can help each person to develop a clear link between his or her mind and heart. This meditation exercise is based on a ladder of rhythms, which create an ever-deeper channel of inner emptiness for each participant between his or her mind, and heart; which is indeed their fountain of innate wisdom, peace and love.
These exercises transcend religions and belief systems as they focus the seeker’s attention on one of the key things we all have in common: our heart and the unlimited potential it holds.
Based on recent scientific research carried out by the Heart Math Institute, our heart is enclosed in magnetic and electric fields that are many times more powerful than those produced by our brain. In fact the brain continuously synchronises its activities with the electro-magnetic pulse of the heart, and when a person is relaxed and quiet, their breathing and blood pressure also become synchronised. Therefore, through active meditation techniques, we can alter our heart frequency, our brain waves, and ultimately our hormonal secretion, all of which enables us to develop a process by which we can improve our sense of inner peace. As a result, heart based meditation techniques, such as the one taught in our workshops, can be an important step in achieving Stress Relief, healthy mind and body, as well as providing other therapeutic benefits. For ultimately the health of our bodies and mind is largely dependent on our state of inner peace.
What to expect
This online workshop will provide an introduction to Heart Meditation, based on the principles outlined in the book “Heart Meditation”: www.heartmeditation.eu. Through the use of specific ancient rhythms, played on a Daf (hand frame) drum, this meditation technique guides the practitioner inwards on the path of inner peace.
The workshop has both a theoretical and a practical element.
The theoretical discussions will be based on the following subjects:
- How to recognise and remove troublesome thoughts & stress from your daily life and outlook
- How to develop your connection to your heart through meditation
- How to develop your knowledge of your heart through personal experiences
- How to employ these techniques in your daily life and thus establish a continuous state of inner peace
When we hold in-person workshops we usually provide Daf drums for participants to play themselves, but in the current situation we have developed a remote way of providing a similar effect involving pre-recorded rhythms. These will be shared with you during the workshop.
The session will last 90minutes, starting at 4pm BST,
We look forward to seeing you there (at least virtually 😉
