Christmas Meditation Intensive

29 and 30 December 2017

We welcome you for a beginners-friendly weekend meditation course. Meditation classes, simple breathing exercices, cooking demonstration, nutritious vegetarian meals and walks along the Thames make this a mini-retreat in the heart of London.


Meditation is the art of slowing down and focusing the mind. The science of meditation is a universal tradition that traces its origin of thousands of years before the advent of today's civilization, surviving unchanged as is has passed from generation to generation.


Many people come to the practice of meditation because they feel unfulfilled and empty, with stress and inner restlessness playing a much larger part in their lives than they would like. They may be unsure of what meditation can do, but know it promises relief from the high tension and fast peace of today's modern society. Meditation gives relief and much more. It teaches us that there is a power within each one of us, a peace and a wisdom which we can tap into once we know it is available. This power inspires, reinforces and gives strength to those who seek to grow in a positive direction. Light is there and available to all, we only need to connect ourselves to the current.

Positive Thinking Course

Tap into the creative power of the mind

Every thought has literal value to you in every possible way.
What you think upon, that you become
Swami Sivananda

With our thoughts, we hold in our hands the most powerful tools of self-transformation. Thoughts form the roots of all our actions, they are the silent bricks that build our lives. Thought is the most creative power in the universe and when the potential contained in the thought is realised, it is the beginning of great spiritual growth.

You will be introduced to simple and practical techniques to help improve the quality of your thoughts and tap into the creative power of the mind. This course forms the natural continuation of the meditation course – meditation and positive thinking are inseparable. We recommend attending the meditation course before participating in the positive thinking course.

- The nature of thoughts
- How habits are formed
- Transforming negative thoughts and emotions
- Developing thought power

4 session Special Course
The nature of pure love - Narada Bhakti Sutras


“Love is the law of life. To love is to fulfil the law. And to fulfil the law means eternal peace and verlasting happiness. Love is life. Love is joy. Love is warmth. Love is the golden tie which binds heart to heart, soul to soul. To live is to love. To love is to live.”  Swami Sivananda

Bhakti means devotion, the most precious of all possessions. Bhakti opens the heart, fills the mind with purity and generates harmony and divine love.


The Narada Bhakti Sutras are filled with devotion. In a brief discourse containing 84 aphorisms, sage Narada defines the process of devotion and the nature of selfless love. Its language is simple, beautiful and direct. Its profound wisdom touches the heart and is directly applicable to daily life.
