Wellness Talks: Meditation Introduction Talk

SaturdayNovember 95:00 PM


About the Session

Meditation – with so many benefits, why isn’t everyone doing it?

Much is known about the benefits of meditation, yet relatively few people meditate and even fewer have a daily practice. For all the information and publicity, meditation remains in the “too hard” basket. Come and join us for an evening with Neil Kirkbride and Melanie Kirkbride, master meditation teachers and co-founders of The Soft Road. They will demystify all things meditation and share their knowledge of how to get started and reap the benefits in everyday life.

Melanie and Neil teach Vedic meditation in New York, Sydney and their home base of Yorkshire in the North of England. With their business careers and extensive experience of life, they make learning meditation accessible and relatable within the demands and challenges of their clients’ lives. Many of their clients previously considered themselves too busy – or too stressed out – to meditate and now can’t imagine life without it.
