Join Happy Melon Studios and course facilitator Meg James for a 4-week meditation program to equip yourself with simple, effective techniques for bringing calm and balance into your everyday activities. Learn to Meditate will help you to not only implement a regular meditation practice, but maintain it, despite the myriad of obstacles life throws your way. Each session includes a component of theory, meditation practice and group discussion.

Why Meditate?


Our modern lives are busier than ever before, with every day filled with endless to-do lists, commitments, obligations and expectations. We are a society obsessed with constantly doing; striving for more, newer, better. And as a result, we are experiencing greater levels of stress and burnout than ever before.

While sometimes it can feel impossible to switch off, deep down we know that stillness and silence is what our bodies and minds are desperately craving. We know that meditation and mindfulness will help us connect to the sense of calm we have all been searching for. 

The benefits of meditation are no secret. There are a myriad of highly successful (and happy) people, such as Steve Jobs, Oprah Winfrey, Angelina Jolie and Richard Branson who all attribute their ability to stay calm in the midst of stress to meditation.

And it’s not just anecdotal. Thousands of studies have proven the positive impact that meditating has on our health, happiness and wellbeing.

+ Experience less stress and anxiety
