9.15am – 4.00pm

 Friends’ Meeting House, 17 Woodville Road, Ealing, W5 2SE

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.

with Rolf Sovik PsyD,

President of the Himalayan Institute USA, Honesdale, PA.


4-day retreat at Domus Mariae Convent, Chigwell, Essex (UK).

 Fri 25th – Tues 29th May 2018.


      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.


Join Dr. Sovik and:

  • Practice a deeply satisfying and universal method of meditation.
  • Use silence and stillness to enhance your meditation experience.
  • Explore key roles of Karma-, Bhakti-, Jnana- and Raja-yoga in daily life.
  • Examine the therapeutic qualities of the Gita’s message, &
  • Fully grasp the “Wheel of Karma” as an experience shared by all humans.
