The aim of the Young Meditators programme is to encourage those of us taking early steps on the contemplative way into the ongoing journey of simplicity and depth.
One of the things we can celebrate as a community is that meditation practice can excite, inspire and transform young people, even in the midst of the intense questions and experiences that characterise late adolescence and early adulthood.
The stresses and obsessions that can come to dominate our progress-oriented minds are perhaps particularly present in the lives of young people. To nourish and challenge young seekers is thus a real and pressing challenge for the World Community. It strikes me as an Undergraduate student of twenty-one that there are two main ways in which we can invite younger people into a meaningful relationship with meditation.
