The aim of meditation is to bring inner peace within ourselves and the world in a positive and spiritual way. The world is not a peaceful place and within every soul, there is some form of stress or stress and tension. It is essential to create positive and peaceful thoughts to bring peace of mind.

The best way to begin the healing process is to alter our thoughts from being negative to positive. The positive discovery about meditation is that we are focusing on our self and becoming free of negativity.

Meditation techniques simply involve a process of transforming yourself and your thoughts by recognising the negative thoughts and learning to change them into positive and peaceful ones.

At MhIST we gather together in a safe and friendly atmosphere to explore relaxation and meditation techniques. It does not require you to lie down but just to sit in a comfortable chair, closing your eyes and experiencing the calm.

We listen to uplifting words to a background of soothing music.

We hold two sessions. Each session lasts for one hour and held every Monday at MhIST, Hanover House, Hanover Street, Bolton, BL1 4TG from:

Group 1:12:15 pm until 1:15 pm
Group 2: 1:30 pm until 2:30 pm
