Welcome to our Introduction to Meditation 5-week course. We are really excited to be able to offer this opportunity to you. The course enables each participant to understand the principles of meditation, learn various breathing techniques and practice a variety of meditation and relaxation techniques. In order to absorb the teachings and get the most from your practice, we feel that the greatest results come from learning and practicing in small groups. Therefore, this course will run with an intake of a maximum of 10 students.
You will have the option to deepen your practice and extend your learning with Haelan Therapy through other learning options, after the course is completed.
*The course structure*
Each week, students will learn a variety of new skills and techniques, as well as ask questions and socialise in the learning group. In order to help you embody your practice into your everyday life, you will be given an exercise to work with privately at home. You will also be requested to join our private Facebook group for all course participants to ask questions and share their experiences as we journey the course together, enabling you to get the most from your experience.

*About the teacher – Philip Storey*
Hi, I’m Philip and I teach meditation at Haelan Therapy. I came to meditation through my own journey with life’s stresses and strains. Working in the city as a director of a large technology company, I was seeking to find the answer to “what does freedom from stress feel like?”, I became interested in meditation, trying various apps and podcasts. A few months on, I was invited to meditate with friends in a small group. As I practiced more, I felt the stress leave me. My focus, balance and harmony was restoring and I felt better every day. This is when meditation became a regular practice for me.
Since then, I have deepened my practice in various parts of the world, including San Francisco, Thailand and Vietnam. It was in Vietnam, after three weeks of one-to-one meditation practice for three hours per day, that I realised I wanted to share meditation through teaching others. I have been teaching ever since, and I am delighted to be a part of the Haelan team, to share the learning and practice of meditation with others. Since then, I have trained as a reiki practitioner with Haelan Therapy (2nd degree level), and begun healing others.
I hope to see you on one of our meditation courses soon!
