Although meditation covers a wide range of methods, in the essentials they aim at one direction: to master the mind, at first. Understanding and practicing meditation would further lead to modify one’s own paradigm, and thus to transform one’s way of living. Through awareness, one can heal oneself and the world. This would lead to the thorough assimilation of the entire process of meditation, and particularly of HBP Meditation Diagram.

GENERAL INFO ABOUT THE SCHOOL OF THE WISDOM

The School of the Wisdom aims at bringing each student to survey life ‘from the centre’, which is intuitive awareness. An intense sense of Life must always accompany every true student. There can be no Wisdom without an ever increasing sense of Wonder.

Essential in the progress towards Wisdom is a growing intimacy with all aspects of Nature. The message which each tree, flower, animal, meadow, sea, sky, and cloud has, must be listened to and understood.

Timings (may vary due to the course)

Monday to Friday
Meditation: 8.00 to 8.30 a.m.
Classes: 8.30 to 11 a.m. and 3.30 to 5 p.m.
