The Kent Website since 1999
Heard something about meditation and what to know more? This in essence is the purpose of Meditation for Health in Kent, an organisation created specifically to share meditation expertise. We don't offer meditation in a religious context, rather as a tool to improve general health and well being. If this sounds interesting please read on.
Canterbury Meditation For Beginners
1 to 1 sessions with experienced and vetted teachers sometimes available, when demand is high appointments at short notice may not always be available. For more details sign up to our newsletter. No previous meditation experience is necessary.
Meditation may be useful for anyone who wishes to calm the mind and clarify the thinking process for a few minutes each day. In due course the process is likely to improve concentration, reduce stress and enable us to take life a little more in our stride.
You don't need any experience, if necessary we can provide or arrange a suitable venue, the only prerequisite is to want to try meditation.
For more details about the benefits and techniques you can visit www.meditationforhealth.co.uk.
Our 1 to 1 support provides guidance and practical help for people who want to meditate, often for the first time. We do require users to pay any direct costs (travelling expenses for example) and a contribution to the time of the meditation guide. If the fee is a problem we will try and work around the issue.
We teach three basic meditations: A Simple Breathing Meditation, Sound based Meditation and a Mindfulness Meditation.
Anyone who has ongoing physical or mental health issues requiring the regular support of a health care professional should seek the advice of their doctor before they start. Having said this the techniques we use have been around for thousands of years and are tried and trusted. We use the methods that we ourselves have been taught, rather than inventing something new.
For people new to meditation we suggest three one hour sessions spread over a two week period, we're happy to provide individual one off sessions or to make longer term arrangements. We also provide a group meditation service for businesses and community groups. Please email us for more information.
The organisation has a mission to:
"To deliver relevant meditation information and support to anyone who might benefit from the experience."
Being a secular organisation Meditation for Health in Kent doesn't offer any religious or spiritual teaching, rather it aims at providing simple: instructions, help and advice for people wishing to meditate or learn a little more about the subject.
Our guides are all experienced meditators having practised under respected meditation masters and teachers - typically for ten to twenty years. Several are committed to a particular spiritual path but teach meditation outside of any religious tradition.
We ask for a contribution to cover the cost of the meditation guide in addition to travelling time/costs if they are coming any great distance. We have male and female guides based in Kent and Essex.

Kent community news
Kent is home to thousands of local charities and not for profit community groups. They serve local people and support a wide range of good causes at home and abroad. Behind every organisation is a person or group of people committed to making a difference to the object of their good cause. At Yourcounty we aim to provide free coverage of any local organisation looking for some promotion within these pages.
How can we help?
If you send us some relevant and original copy, we'll publish it within our community section where possible. Across the website we receive more submissions for inclusion that we can use but for the community pages we try to find a home for all worthy material that we receive. As long as the information is connected to a good cause and linked to Kent in some way we're likely to find a way to use it.
Your feedback counts
The Yourcounty community pages really only scratch the surface of the not for profit activity in the county. We generally publish material as we receive it. If you or your organisation has a story to tell or wants to make some suggestions about the quality or quantity of our coverage let us know. Please type 'community' in the title of your email.
