In this four week course we will introduce the practice of meditation in a very practical and down to earth way. The practice of meditation is of great value in bringing one deeper into the many levels and states of awareness that reside in the heart. In this fast moving society meditation practice grants the mind serenity, the heart freedom and the body deep rest. Meditation is a great way to reset and de-stress the mind, heart, and body.
We will break down this practice into three key areas of focus reflecting 4 limbs from Patanjalis Yoga Sutras:
- Asana (posture)
- Pranayama (breath)
- Dharana (concentration)
- Dhyana (meditation)
Posture: To facilitate meditation the posture or "seat" is important. Through basic alignment instruction we will set the foundation for your practice and will you in finding a posture that is comfortable whether on the floor or in a chair.
Exploring the Breath: the breath is integral to the practice of meditation. We will explore the natural breath and introduce basic methods of breath work in reclined and seated positions.
Exploring Awareness (dharana, dhyana): We will introduce different methods for gliding into the state of meditation. We will explore this practice with guided meditation instructions and introduce different tools for the mind that will support you in going deeper into the heart of awareness.
