The teaching and practice of Meditation in our schools

Who was it said that most of the difficulties we have in life derive from the absence of silence in our daily lives? There is some truth in this. Jesus understood this when he encouraged his disciples to go to a lonely place and pray.

Lloyd Bracken, Faith Development Co-ordinator, CEIST has created a survey that will, firstly, measure in some way the interest in meditation in our schools and, secondly, measure the interest there might be in attending a support day for teachers. 

Please click here to complete the on-line survey.

It will only take a couple of minutes of your time.
