These meditations help to relax both body and mind and lead to a deep experience of inner peace.

Meditations for a Clear Mind


These meditations help us to experience mental clarity and inner peace by meditating on our mind itself.

Meditations for a Kind Heart

These meditations help to develop greater peace of mind and happiness, and to improve our relationships with others through learning to cherish others.

What to expect at a meditation class in the CBD

Experience the benefits of meditation for yourself through these practical classes that emphasise guided meditation. Each week we focus on a different meditation, cycling through a series of three topics:

Reduce stress: Relax your body and mind with guided meditations that use mindfulness of the breath to give rise to a spacious and peaceful feeling, and an experience of contentment and wellbeing.

Clarity of mind: Explore three profound meditations on the nature of the mind. Generate an experience of mental clarity that will last beyond your meditation and enable you to maintain a flexible and light mind.

Improve relationships: Strengthen your good heart, kindness and compassion with three meditations that bring peace and harmony to your relationships with others – at work and at home.

Drop in any week – each class is self-contained and includes practical advice on how to improve your concentration and gain a deep experience of meditation.

Workplace Wellbeing: These classes integrate perfectly into your Employee Wellbeing Program. We can invoice you directly to enable your staff to learn methods to manage and reduce stress and improve engagement and workplace relationships. Contact us for more info.

The Teacher

The teacher of our CBD Meditation Class is Buddhist teacher Jo Whatley. As well as being a keen meditator, Jo has had many years’ experience in managing teams in a high pressure environment – and so is well-placed to guide busy working people to refresh their minds and find clarity through meditation.
