Sahaja Yoga Free Meditation classes have been running in Swiss Cottage for over a decade now.
Swiss Cottage itself is part of the London Borough of Camden and is named after an inn called The Swiss Tavern that was built in 1804 in the style of a Swiss chalet and on the site of a former tollgate keeper’s cottage.
The inn was later renamed Swiss Cottage. Nowadays, volunteers travel from across London to stage the weekly Tuesday evening free meditation session at the Swiss Cottage Community Centre on Winchester Road starting at 7.30pm.
What’s it all about – what can I expect at the weekly meeting?
Learn and experience…
• Simple meditation techniques.
• Guided meditations to help reduce stress and achieve the peace of true meditation.
• Tips on how to help stay in balance during the day and how to meditate at home.
About the meditation and classes…
The tradition and aims of meditation are explained which in essence is to be in the present with no mental activity or thoughts about the past or the future. Mental silence is the key ingredient.
Short guided meditations with affirmations are used to clear and balance the subtle body to enable the silence of meditation to be experienced.
During the meditation, participants sit on a chair (with shoes removed to connect with the Mother Earth) with hands on their laps.
