MEDITATION instructor Darren Walker wants to help Moonee Valley residents let go of stress and anxiety during upcoming meditation classes in Essendon.
The former Australian weightlifting champion has founded a meditation and support group for anyone who may be experiencing anxiety or stress.
Mr Walker said meditation helped people let go of their anxieties and experience “moments of profound calmness”.
Mr Walker began meditating after suffering from a range of illnesses and hopes to help the local community by sharing his experiences.
He said a lot of the anxiety people suffer is related to finance and relationships.
“Meditation is something that has been practised and utilised for thousands of years,” Mr Walker said.
“It really helps you to let go.”
The first of Mr Walker’s weekly support groups will be on Thursday, December 1, at the Keilor Rd Uniting Church, 132 Keilor Rd, Essendon.
