Ever since the Tara Centre was opened in 1996, the practice of meditation as part and parcel of everyday life has been facilitated as a “user-friendly” approach to the deepening of “healing, peace and holistic well-being” in our lives.
In recent years the practice of mindfulness, closely associated with Eastern spirituality and in particular Zen Buddhism, has put down deep roots in the West. At Tara we have always approached the teaching of meditation from a generic perspective which respects each participant’s world view and spiritual orientation.
In recent years, we have adapted our programme to include an appropriate emphasis on core elements of mindfulness within the broad canvas of the universal, age old multi-faceted generic approach to the practice of meditation which has been the context within which we offer our teaching.

“Mindfulness practice means that we commit fully
in each moment to be present;
inviting ourselves to interface with this moment in full awareness, with the intention to embody as best we can
an orientation of calmness, mindfulness,
and equanimity right here and right now.” – Jon Kabat-Zinn
