    'Peace of Mind': Eight week meditation course for military veterans and homecoming service-people led by the London Meditation Project

    Includes a special day on Monday 25th July with Vietnam War veteran Claude AnShin Thomas, author of 'At Hell's Gate' - free copies of his book are available: contact info@londonmeditationproject.org

    On this eight week course you will have the opportunity to learn meditations that can help you connect with your own calm and inner resources. Supportive and respectful training in deep relaxation, meditation and mindfulness-based stress reduction, developing skills to relax more deeply, manage stress and begin to heal invisible wounds of war, in the company of a group of other veterans and service-people.

    Please do your best to commit to attending for the whole eight week course: there will be a process of learning and sharing that will work best with full attendance.

  2. Just looking. And thinking a bit. I used to meditate on twenty mile marches. I used to meditate a lot about the sergeant major. I meditated during a mortar battle once. It was like dreaming with punctuations.
