Meditation

Why meditate?

The meditation techniques taught in our weekly courses cover a variety of contemplative methods that can foster well-being, kindness, and peace of mind. The meditation lessons offer a unique opportunity to explore and apply these techniques.

Furthermore, these weekly meetings are a precious support for one’s individual practice.
