Meditation is a way of life. Meditation means having awareness of all your thoughts. Whatever you do with awareness is meditation. It describes a state of consciousness where the mind is free of all the mixed thoughts, and is able to concentrate on just one. The Inner Space Centre for Training in Meditation and Self Development (Abu Dhabi) is an organisation that provides courses, seminars, lectures and workshops in meditation, positive values, stress free living and self management to individuals and companies. All activities are free of charge as we believe people should not have to pay for peace of mind.
