Open Meditation is a unique, non-religious approach to learning mindfulness meditation in London. We're a social enterprise teaching Mindfulness for Stress Reduction courses, a Mindfulness Weekend Intensive, Free Introductory Workshops, Drop-In Classes and One to One sessions that teach you to meditate in an integral, simple and effective way.
Our multidisciplinary approach has no gurus, no religious baggage and no dogma. We just focus on one thing; training you in a way of being that heightens your self-awareness and greatly reduces your stress.
We teach two different types of courses: well-being and personal insight. In both, we provide a context for learning by drawing on dozens of influences from different disciplines, ranging from the latest neurological and psychological insights to the wisdom found in the ancient contemplative traditions. We see this open and integral context as vitally important, because no single approach can provide all the necessary elements of a healthy, beneficial and sustainable practice.
If you'd like to know more about mindfulness, our website is packed full of information about its many benefits and the latest clinical studies. If you've never meditated before, you might like to come along to one of our Free Workshops in the first instance, but if you feel ready to start meditating right away, check out our Courses and Intensives.
Where are we?
Open Meditation is currently on hiatus as we plan some future projects and focus on our own meditation practices for a while. We're still running one to one sessions and workplace courses, so please feel free to get in touch if these are of interest.
