Creative Meditation is founded in the recognition that everything originates within the forming fields of thought.
Meditation is an ancient spiritual practice. There is a wide and varied selection of meditative approaches.
A simple description of meditation is that it is focused, attentive thinking. Fundamentally meditation is a transformational practice that brings the soul into relationship with its personality. It is a gradual process that brings about a refreshing attitude to one's inner and outer life. Soul consciousness can be considered as a field of evolving personal wisdom that is acquired through daily living.
Creative Meditation is an approach that uses our innate skills to imagine, plan and develop positive ideas and projects with the intention of bringing them into being. The Group for Creative Meditation works with the six natural qualities and values of the soul that are foundational to the establishment of goodwill and right relations. 'Right' here is taken to mean a common purpose, intention and goal that benefits the Whole.

“The problem of the individual is also the world’s problem, they are not two separate and distinct processes. . . . You are the repository of all humanity. You are the world and world is you. And, if there is a radical transformation in the structure of an individual’s psyche, it will affect the whole consciousness of man.” - Kristnamurti
