An introduction to Anapana courses
Anapana is the observation of natural, normal respiration as it enters and leaves the nostrils. Students also observe a simple moral code to provide a strong base or foundation for their meditation.
Courses are for children and young people between the ages of 8 and 18 yrs. There are separate courses for older and younger children. Residential courses for 12+ are separate for boys and girls. The courses are generally residential and held over two days, but one day courses are also offered.

Comments from Students
“Its my third time and I really enjoy coming here as
I become much more calm and relaxed. In my life I feel more peaceful.”
