After attending drop-in classes in Newtown for about 12 months I was attracted to the centre to see what a day course was like. What I found was a place created to allow for meditation; it was easier to focus, to leave the stress of work or life behind. Unexpectedly I also found a community; a diverse cross section of Sydney people that met to practice meditation and learn about taking control of their lives. There’s no pressure at the centre, just friendly encouragement and understanding.
