Meditation Workshop Birmingham

Science and Practice of Meditation workshop

This workshop will be an exploration of the Science and Practice of Mediation.

At this workshop we shall:

  • Explore the various types of meditation practiced throughout the different cultures of the world
  • Look at how the brain seems to be pre-wired to enable and benefit from the practice of meditation as discovered from recent studies in neuroscience
  • Look at the effect meditation has had on long term mantra based  meditators
  • Look at the effect meditation has on health in general
  • Explore the spiritual/psychological reasons to practice meditation
  • We will also practice four different types of meditation throughout the day

The practices will be:

  • a mindful awareness exercise
  • a spoken guided meditation
  • a Buddhist visualization technique
  • and a simple Indian breath/sound (mantra) based technique



This workshop is being delivered and led by David Nock who:

  • has been studying philosophy for 31 years
  • practicing mantra based meditation for 36 years
  • studied various other types of meditation practices
  • and has a keen interest in the positive effect meditation has on humanity

David has run this workshop quite a few times now and it is always a peaceful, stilling and enjoyable experience.
