About

Welcome to Plymouth University Meditation Society 2021/22

At the Meditation Society, we inspire students to practice meditation, as we believe that you can receive health and wellbeing benefits by meditating. We will teach you how to meditate, a skill that allows you to have higher states of awareness and focused attention. Meditation is like a muscle that needs exercising, but over time, with the right practice and dedication, you can start to improve the relationship with yourself and the world around you. Scientific evidence suggests that by engaging in meditation, you can experience improved health and wellbeing, such as reduced stress & anxiety, and better emotional health. We welcome all Plymouth students to join us for our weekly meditation sessions, whether you are an absolute beginner or have previous experience.

Aims:

  • To inspire students to practice meditation for health and wellbeing benefits.
  • To create a safe and harmonious social environment, where students can enjoy discussing the meditations.
  • To allow discussion of spiritual beliefs from a variety of cultures, encouraging students to live a life with deeper meaning.

We will achieve the aims by:

  • Providing a friendly and fun space that welcomes any student interested in learning meditation, regardless of previous experience.
  • Hosting weekly meditation sessions from a variety of cultures, with the chance for discussion and reflection during each session. Meditation sessions are currently held on Tuesdays at 7pm.
  • Getting guest speakers and videos of gurus in some sessions.
  • Explaining the science behind meditation, with talks from leading neuroscientists included in some sessions, facilitating students to make changes within their lives.
  • Hosting other activities alongside traditional meditations including yoga, watching spiritual movies, going for mindful walks, cooking & eating spiritual food, engaging in Kirtan (an Indian cultural tradition), plus much more!
