About Us

About Hello and welcome to Meditation Practices. I created Meditation Practices because of my own interest in meditation and the effect it has had on my life. I aim to bring you all the latest, current news on meditation and meditation related topics, information on meditation gurus as well as articles relating my own personal experiences.

So a bit about me – my name is Janet Matthews and I am a retired headteacher of a center for  pupils with emotional and behavioral problems. Meditation has been a life saver for me over the years, helping me to cope with the stress of bringing up 3 children of my own as well as running a Pupil Referral Centre.

My own experience includes Buddhist Meditation, Guided Meditation, Walking Meditation, Mindfulness Meditation, and silent Carmelite Meditation as a member of the 3rd order of Carmelites.

I have read countless books on meditation and hope to review and recommend some to you. I am also a trained Enneagram Teacher of the oral tradition (part 1) which I did with Helen Palmer in 2003.

I hope you will visit often and leave your thoughts and comments.
