Online satsang with Swami Shubamritananda
Swami Shubamritananda is Amma's chief translator, and has given many satsangs in the UK and Europe.  His talks are always inspiring and full of anecdotes about life with Amma.

White Flowers meditation

BeFriending

See this link.

So what makes us want to volunteer our time?  I asked a couple of the MACCS Befriending Companions wonderful befrienders who have been connecting once a week for an hour with their befriendees for the past 6-8 weeks.

IAM Refresher Course

Sunday 23rd August 2pm

Not sure if you're doing it right? Need a bit of a boost to get going or keep going? This course will give you the opportunity. This is the third course we've run this summer and is proving a popular way for people to reconnect with their meditation practice. It will be conducted on Zoom, led by Mike Sofroniou and will last between two and two and a half  hours. This is for people who have learnt the full IAM(35) technique. It doesn't matter if you haven't practised it for some time - now is a good time to clear any doubts and reinvigorate your practice. Please register online at macentre.org.uk and then you will be sent a link to the meeting. The session will be limited to 15 people so that everyone can ask questions and contribute. It also means we will be able to see each other all together. If more people sign up then we can run further sessions at a later date.
