Would you like to learn to meditate or how to practice mindfulness? Do you want to deepen or kick-start your meditation practice? Insight for Wellbeing is Leeds's longest established secular meditation centre, and we are based in Chapel Allerton, Leeds, West Yorkshire. We offer a range of mindfulness classes, from day events to evening classes and we also specialise in Tantra Yoga meditation.
We offer courses for complete beginners and also for more experienced practitioners. All classes are held in our purpose built meditation house in a quiet and peaceful location only three miles from the centre of Leeds. The venue is easily accessible by bus and car, and day and weekend courses are also convenient for those travelling from nearby towns and cities and towns such as York, Harrogate, Sheffield, Wakefield, Huddersfield or Manchester.
All of our courses and classes are taught by Zeenat Cameron, a meditation teacher and personal development facilitator with a background in clinical psychology. In her teaching Zeenat draws on her many years of experience in the Buddhist, Yoga and Tantra traditions, as well as her training and experience in Western non-faith approaches such as mindfulness.
To benefit from these courses you do not need to follow any particular spiritual path. All you need is a curiosity to discover your inner self. Meditation brings true wellbeing, that stable state of inner harmony which arises when we gain insight, or literally 'see into', the truth of who we are. To meditate regularly has been shown to bring many benefits, including:
- optimum health, vitality and energy
- love and appreciation for your self and who you truly are
- harmony and bliss in your relationships
- effectiveness and creativity in your working life
- knowing how to emotionally balance and centre your self in challenging situations
- success, abundance and contentment in your day-to-day life
These changes come about when we understand our body, mind and emotions; and learn to use our new knowledge and insight to transform old, unhelpful habits into positive forces for growth.
