Meditation Courses

A Guide to Meditation

A thing I often hear is,
“I don’t know how to meditate“
This generally implies that there is a right way and a wrong way to meditate…. There really isn’t! Just find a way that works for you. I’d recommend finding a quiet space where you know you won’t be disturbed – maybe first thing in the morning or last thing at night. Just take some time to sit in stillness and really appreciate it. A common place to start is the breath. Try counting the breath, in-breath one…. out-breath two… in-breath three…. etc. up to ten. When you reach ten, just start back at one again.

Numerous studies have been done on the health and wellbeing benefits to meditation and mindfulness, including: stress reduction; pain relief; mental clarity; calmness; improved self-esteem; and confidence. As your practice becomes more consistent, you will really start to feel these benefits and more. You’ll be able to utilise your new skills to make day-to-day life a bit easier, a bit more straightforward, whilst also gaining a deeper insight into yourself.

At Kinburn, we teach Zen Mindfulness Meditation. Our residential retreats are based on either Health & Wellbeing or on Insight. We also run these as 8-week courses for the St Andrews community, where you can really kick-start your meditation and mindfulness practice in the most affirmative way.
