Meditation practices of The Third Space

Meditation @ The Third Space has been evolving and growing since 2016.

There are currently two regular practices – Mindful Meditation and Monastic Meditation with additional meditations run throughout the year. All meditations are guided practices, with an experienced facilitator guiding each session.

All meditation practices are based on the concept of “shalom” – a Hebrew word for peace. It is a holistic word which incorporates peace of body, soul, spirit and mind.

Mindful Meditation specifically aims at bringing a peace to the body and mind through the practice of mindfulness, deep breathing and relaxation exercises. The practice is a thoroughly evidence-based practice shown to decrease stress/cortisol levels and improve creativity and concentration.

Monastic Meditation aims to achieve “shalom” peace which is the Hebrew word for holistic peace – of mind, body, soul, and spirit through incorporating mindfulness, silence, the Lectio Divina (Divine Word) and through engaging in “talking circle” – an opportunity to voluntarily share personal reflections that come as a result of the meditation.
