Meditation + Evolution

Every Tuesday evening, 7.00 - 8.30pm


Get a taste of the EnlightenNext Discovery Cycle every Tuesday at the UK Centre in Islington. Our Meditation + Evolution evenings convey the rich nature of Evolutionary Enlightenment through an exploration of the two fundamental aspects of self and reality: being and becoming.

This is conveyed through an experiential immersion in the timeless ground of being via a guided meditation. Then you learn how this direct experience of meditation can help us to awaken to the freedom of our Authentic Self, the unconditioned evolutionary impulse that is the very life force within us. An important part of the evening is the lively group discussion that follows which brings to life the many facets of evolutionary spirituality that are presented and how this relates to the true nature of engaged practice.


Both an introduction to and an ever-deepening engagement with Evolutionary Enlightenment, these evenings are led by committed spiritual practitioners with many years of experience. They also provide a great way to connect with a community of like-minded individuals who are seeking deeper meaning in their lives and know that spiritual practice and being engaged in the world in a meaningful way go hand-in-hand.


These popular events begin at 7.00pm cost £5 per session. Immediately after the programme, at 8.30pm, the conversation continues over a delicious vegetarian dinner in our Centre restaurant (£7).
