Free Meditation & Yoga – just show up–we start on Wednesday in Bath 7.30pm
Free Meditation & Yoga Bath
7:30pm - 9pm


Introduction

-
Hello there! - We'd like to welcome you to Free weekly meetings hosted by Michael, Bernard which take place at the:

John Williams Room (2nd Floor), United Reformed Church Halls, Grove St, Bath, BA2 6PJ,

on Wednesday evenings from 7.30pm until 9.00pm

With Sahaja Yoga Meditation we normally sit on chairs to achieve yoga, effortlessly & spontaneously. No Mats or special clothing required.

All across the globe, many are seeking new sources of energy. Meanwhile, the most transformative energy of all is hiding in plain sight, within us. It's natural, sustainable, and infinitely renewable. It's called inner kundalini energy. And everyone already has it — everyone!. It is often likened to an inner feminine or motherly energy which automatically knows about us and what is needed to help us restore balance and harmony within our subtle being. It works spontaneously, effortlessly, organically and cannot be paid for.

Sahaja Yoga Meditation is a simple time-honoured technique that lets you tap into that energy and harness its power to become better balanced and better connected to yourself — emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually.

If you're having trouble juggling the challenges in your life, Sahaja Yoga Meditation might well help you manage stress, master your emotions and find solutions to your problems. You may enjoy better health, better focus, and a deeper understanding of the universe and your place in it.

Meditation is not just for mystics and monks. Sahaja Yoga meditation is for everyone. Anyone can do it. It's that easy. But with the Sahaja Yoga experience, you'll quickly realise, it isn't your typical Meditations 'R Us type class. It's much more than just feeling peaceful and relaxed. Sahaja Yoga Meditation has many layers, varied and deep. Explore at your own pace, in your own way. Our volunteer experts are always available to help.

Ready to plug into your inner energy? A Sahaja Yoga Meditation class is a great way to start. A few minutes of your life may be all it takes to connect to your inner energy and light the path to lifelong transformation. Sahaja Yoga is more than a temporary solution or quick relief — it is a journey, rather than a destination. It's all about energy — guaranteed pure and carbon neutral. You can never have too much of it.

The best part? All classes are free. No strings, no catch.
Everyone is welcome. Bring a friend, bring your self — all are welcome.

We have a web site here in London too which you can visit for more info about weekly meetings: www.sahajayogalondon.co.uk

Education: How and what should we be teaching our children?
Bath Philosophy & Debate Group
7:30pm - 9:30pm


• What we'll do
HERE IS A LIST OF SOME THINGS WE COULD TALK ABOUT, BUT PLEASE ALSO BRING ALONG YOUR OWN QUESTIONS.

State or Private? Should the state subsidise private schools? Some academies have been a success and others a failure, so were they a good idea?
Are faith schools a good idea? Do you think there should be limits to how and what should be taught in such schools?
At home or in a school? Is it better to teach your own children, or do they miss out on social contact?
Schools are a post code lottery, and the best are difficult to get into. How can we make schools more equal in opportunity for all? (Also see https://www.theguardian.com/education/2017/dec/17/call-to-fine-schools-that-illegally-exclude-poorly-performing-pupils)
Would it be a good idea to bring back grammar schools? Should there be vocational schools for the less academic pupils?

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO JOIN THE DISCUSSION BUT ARE UNABLE TO ATTEND PLEASE MESSAGE ME WITH A SUGGESTED TIME THAT WOULD BETTER SUIT YOU. NUMBERS ARE LIMITED FOR EACH MEETUP IN ORDER TO ALLOW EACH PARTICIPANT TIME TO SPEAK. HOWEVER, REPEATS WILL BE SCHEDULED IF NECESSARY, SO PLEASE JOIN THE WAITING LIST OR MESSAGE ME TO REGISTER YOUR FURTHER INTEREST.
On the night please:

-Sit in a circle and speak to the whole circle; one conversation at a time
-Aim for equal airtime; points should be:
*Short
*Clearly-structured and
*On-topic
-Arrive early to order drinks

The host moderates but peer-moderation is encouraged
