The Himalayan Institute (UK) aims to help individuals lead a happier, more natural life and so discover how to evolve spiritually. HI (UK) offers courses and retreats on hatha yoga, breathing & relaxation, meditation and practical philosophy.
Meditation asks us to take a seat, quieten ourselves and experience the joys of simply being rather than wanting and trying. In time this will show us what is true and not true, and open up a deep inner resource that resolves conflict and gives life true meaning. The event covers meditation in a way suitable for beginners and those already practising.

The Bhagavad Gita combines four messages each charting, with unequalled variety and human richness, a pathway from relentless activity to peace of mind & enlightenment. Clearly, practically, and framed with universal appeal, the Gita’s dialogue opens the way to spiritual self-discovery, with meditation as an essential part of its vision of spirituality.
