Here's how our program works

Each weekday, Memorial meditates group leader, Yvonne Collett, holds a brief introduction beginning at 12 noon to familiarize newcomers to the process of meditation. At 12:15 p.m., meditation begins. After a brief lead-in we simply sit in silence. You can sit on one of our mats on the floor or you can sit in a chair. Those familiar with meditation arrive a few minutes before 12:15 p.m for the sitting.

About meditation

Meditation is for everyone. It is proven to be calming, relaxing, balancing and healing. Taking this time for yourself can not only benefit you; it can also have a positive effect on your studies, work, family and other relationships.

Here's something I bet you didn't know about meditation. It may take up to 45 days of daily practice before you begin to experience the benefits. Just like learning to play tennis, meditation is a skill that is developed by practice. Practising meditation for 45 consecutive days will help you to establish a great habit that will be easy to continue.

For most, meditation is a slow, gradual process. With daily practice, change occurs over time.
