CALM IN THE CITY

Meditation Mondays will include led meditations and mindfulness practice, short talks, Q&A sessions and discussions on both traditional and contemporary themes in meditation and mindfulness.

Meditation Mondays testimonials
I attended Meditation Monday as I wanted to know more about stress management through breathing and meditation techniques. I started meditating a few years ago and find it is a real antidote to the stress of everyday life as an NHS professional. However, I felt in need of some direction - Catherine definitely provided this. The day was very special. The sessions are held in a beautiful yurt (overlooked by the Gherkin!) and the teaching is tailored to the individual level and needs of those attending. In particular, Catherine was sensitive to the pressures of NHS work and I really felt her appreciation of the work we do.
I left feeling relaxed, inspired and more able to manage NHS based life. I would highly recommend this to all local NHS staff - our job is so demanding and meditation gives us an opportunity to make space for ourselves and keep a positive outlook, however challenging the "shop floor" becomes.
Thank you Catherine and London Meditation Project Xx ps. the lunch is also amazing...and followed by afternoon tea!

I work in quite a demanding job in the City and can find it hard to relax after a difficult day. I’d read a bit about meditation and mindfulness previously but had never practised anything concrete, so a day’s introduction seemed like the perfect place to start. The relaxed teaching and peaceful atmosphere of the farm made for a really enjoyable day, and there was even a tasty fresh lunch included! I've definitely learned some techniques I can use in my everyday life and am looking forward to building on them doing more classes in the future.
