Meditation classes in Hadleigh and Canvey are taught by Emma Walker.
Emma was born and grew up in Essex then at age 22 began a journey that was to last twenty years and take her to many countries around the world.
Along the way she met and studied with many Tibetan Buddhist lamas in the United States, Canada, India, Nepal, Taiwan, Belgium and Portugal. She worked in Buddhist centres and also spent three years in the traditional enclosed retreat in France under the guidance of Tulku Pema Wangyal Rinpoche.
While personally holding Buddhist beliefs, Emma chooses to present a secular, non religious form of Mindfulness Meditation at her classes. In this way she hopes that the classes are open to all, regardless of beliefs or tradition. Training and taming the mind are the root of Mindfulness Meditation and also the bedrock of Buddhism.
