Learn a radical and inspiring approach to meditation from a master teacher

This evening’s talk presents a radical and inspiring person-centred approach to meditation that is relevant to both beginners and experienced practitioners.

Meditation is natural. How else could it have arisen in so many different cultures, geographies and times? Benefits are:

– To be at ease.
– To be watchful and observant.
– To be caring and compassionate.
– To feel connected to the wonder and energy of life.
– To enquire and explore meaning and consciousness.

These are natural ways of being.

William Bloom, one of the UK’s most influential and experienced meditation teachers, will describe this new approach. He will show how meditation is a normal human activity and not a special or difficult practice belonging to one particular spiritual or psychological tradition.

The presentation will explain how everyone has their own best method for becoming calm and lovingly awake, such as being in nature, movement, mantra, breath and so on. It will clarify how everyone can also choose their own preferred practices inside meditation, such as compassionate witnessing, healing, prayer, journeying and so on.

William will honour the essential jewels of all meditation traditions. He will encourage people to explore with complete freedom all the expansive dimensions of meditation. And, of course, all of this is hugely beneficial for our physical health and wellbeing.

This evening coincides with the publication of William Bloom’s Meditation Masterclass: Handbook for Teachers & Practitioners.

About the speaker, William Bloom

William has been a student of the mysteries since his teens, exploring these dimensions through trance, deep meditation, psychedelics, ceremony and reading. His background includes a two-year off-grid retreat in the High Atlas Mountains of southern Morocco, a doctorate in social psychology from the London School of Economics and ten years working with adult special needs — so his metaphysics is grounded in a clear and realistic understanding of human psychology.

He is the founder and director of the Spiritual Companions Trust and author of 26 books including the international bestsellers Psychic Protection, The Endorphin Effect and The Power of Modern Spirituality. He is a Fellow of the Findhorn Foundation, Europe’s leading eco-spirituality centre, and a trustee of Glastonbury Abbey. He has recently pioneered the first vocational qualification in spirituality and health to be on the government Ofqual Register.
