The Meditation Society provides students with the opportunity to take part in and learn about meditation. Through practising meditation and mindfulness, as well as applying Buddhist philosophies to our daily lives, we can learn to maintain a peaceful and productive mind and outlook. The benefits of meditation are endless, and as a society we strive to spread the happiness. Many of the students that attend our sessions do so to promote positive mental health and find that group meditation significantly improves levels of stress, anxiety and depression, which often accompany university life. At both the Student's Union and the University of Southampton, we encourage free speech and the open exchange of ideas. In this way, we welcome peaceful debate of issues within our clubs and societies. We do not however support acts or words that encourage violence or hatred, and are firmly against those who use these methods to further their personal and political aims. We are a mediation society primarily and hold no political links to any particular organisation. Our regular classes are on Monday and Wednesdays (5-6pm) on Highfield Campus. Room locations may vary from week to week, so please join our Facebook page (/www.facebook.com/groups/medisoc) or email us to receive a weekly newsletter (medisoc@soton.ac.uk). For non-members, each session costs £1. Sessions are free for members. Membership costs £15 for the year or £10 for one semester. Everyone is welcome, so come along and give it a try!
