MEDITATION FOR BEGINNERS: Dhyana Yoga courses

Free introductory courses are repeated regularly throughout the year and consist of three half-day workshops held on alternate Sundays 10.30am – 1pm (N.B. these are in-person meetings held in central London, not online). Please see the Activities page for brief details or here for a full synopsis of the course.  A ‘Mudras & Pranayama’ workshop is also held occasionally, either in-person or via Zoom; this is not for beginners and only open to those who have previously attended an initial course.

BOOKINGS for courses:  please email bookings@dhyanacentre.org, specify which course you are interested in and provide your full name. You will receive a confirmation by email which will include Joining Instructions with course-specific information.

Please note that booking a course involves a commitment to three Sunday mornings on alternate weeks.

IN-PERSON MEDITATIONS

Group meditation takes place twice a month on Tuesdays, including a session of 30 minutes after OM Healing.

A series of experimental sessions are taking place on Tuesdays from January to March (next sessions will be 7th February & 7th March), all 7pm – 9pm. These classes consist of two periods of silent meditation: starting at 7pm, a 30 minute period for beginners followed by feedback and discussion; then after the break at 8pm, a 45 minute meditation for intermediates. Both periods are open without booking to all Centre members and existing students (ie. not for newcomers). It is possible either to leave or arrive during the halfway break at 8pm.

OM HEALING

Please see the OM Healing page.

MEDITATION RETREATS: occasional Sundays 12 – 6pm

One day silent meditation retreats are held at the Theosophical Society’s premises in central London three times a year (New Year, Easter and late summer). Intended for DC members, associates and current students only, these retreats are not open to the general public. If you wish to attend but have not previously been to one of these retreats, please consult with the Centre by email. [CURRENTLY ONLY MINI-RETREATS ON ZOOM, IN-PERSON RETREATS MAY RESUME IN 2023]

Future retreats will be held on…

     Easter Sunday 9th April (10am – 1pm on Zoom)

 

 

Free of charge: the Dhyana Centre is run as a community service and all its activities are free of charge. It is funded entirely by voluntary donations from its members and students, and attendees are invited to contribute according to their means.

Next beginners’ course

will commence on Sunday 26th February. For more details and/or booking, see here.
