This mantra-based meditation originates in a centuries-old tradition. The technique is very simple. It is given in a simple traditional ceremony and is practised for two short periods a day.
The time taken for the practice to become established varies with each individual and much depends on the regularity of the practice. As with learning a musical instrument, deepening and refining the practice is an on-going process.
Once given, assistance will always be available, free of charge, to those who sincerely wish to meditate.
The method of mantra meditation is given through the School of Meditation, with whom the Practical Philosophy School has a long-standing relationship. In the North West students are introduced to meditation at our rural retreat house, Brinscall Hall in Chorley, Lancashire.
Meditation is freely given but there has always been a practice of making a donation to the School of Meditation. People are therefore asked to make a generous donation, which does not cause any hardship, but which recognises their commitment to the practice.
The School of Meditation is a registered charity funded by donations, and its purpose is to make meditation readily available to anyone who wants it.
