The School offers a holistic approach to meditation that encompasses silence, conscious breathing, sacred sound/mantras, gratitude, love and kindness and guided visualisations. Some of these practices originate from the Buddhist and Hindu spiritual traditions, some from the ancient world, while others are universal. The ISIS School aims to bring together the wisdom from different spiritual traditions and weave them in a way that is accessible for the western mind.
Meditation – the bridge for the soul to link with its Divine Origin
Meditation is an ancient spiritual practice, the purpose of which is spiritual awakening beyond physical form. Ancient cultures created meditation practices to harness the power of the Divine inside the body and the Universal Divine Energy (Prana) that exists everywhere. These practices were designed to bring together the body and mind and awaken the Divine Heart. Meditation, in this context, is a way of becoming aware of the bigger perspective whilst in a human body.
Why meditation helps the evolution of the soul
The evolution of the soul is about becoming aware of who we are and the immense possibilities that lie within us. Society has defined us by a very narrow and restrictive framework. In the esoteric tradition, our soul has to realise itself. We take incarnation within different societies and different realities, where we are invited to acknowledge our own gifts beyond the social conditioning. Meditation is a way of discovering the core of who we are – a Divine Being living in a body, through choice.
The evolution of the soul takes place through experiencing different realities and through acknowledging our responses to various circumstances. At some point we realise that we wish to make different choices than those of conditioned mind. At this point we are listening to the inner voice of our wisdom mind, the Wise Self. Our challenge is to continually value and listen to this voice and trust and act on its guidance. Meditation helps us dive into the wisdom mind, to hear the voice of our soul essence and differentiate between this voice, and the voice of the conditioning.

I feel very much part of the group, it has enhanced my own spiritual practice and it has helped me heal and release old hurts and ways of being that no longer served me – last but not least, there’s a lovely, light-hearted atmosphere.
