Meditation in all its many forms has become a ritualistic addition to the lives of busy people everywhere, especially in the past few years as the mindfullness movement has taken off. It’s unique to every person and comes in an endless roster of different forms; a quiet walk in the park, listening to music, taking a meditation or yoga class and so much more.
On this day, World Meditation Day, celebrate what meditation means to you and discover its powers if you haven’t already by signing up to these events, taking part in these one off activities and letting yourself just breathe…
