Learn the art and techniques of the ancient practice of meditation, which has great value in our contemporary lives. We will explore simple yet profound methods for connecting with the insight of a still and spacious presence within. Practices include body awareness, breath awareness, sitting and walking meditation and restful restorative postures. Suitable for beginners and those who want to refresh their meditation practice.
This course will also feature the use of very simple sound practices, to help us enter naturally and easefully into silence. No musical experience is needed. These simple humming and vowel sounds are easy for everyone to use with surprisingly profound results in helping to gain a relaxed and real connection with inner silence.
Many evidence-based studies have shown that meditation is a wonderful life skill that nourishes our physical, emotional, mental and overall wellbeing. When we fully inhabit the body, we can release our layers of conditioning and rest in the part of ourselves that is spacious, open and naturally awake. From this inner beingness, meaning, direction and inspiration can naturally arise. When we connect with this presence in a genuine way, it can be life-transforming.
This course is suitable for complete beginners and for those wanting to refresh their meditation practice. The first half of the session is guided for those newer to meditation; the second half of the session is mostly silent (unguided) to allow all students to integrate the practice and make it their own.
Students who attend the course are also welcome to attend the following weekly meditation sessions held at One Heart. All these sessions are by donation:
Meditation Monday 5.00-6.00pm
Meditation Wednesday 5.00-6.00pm
When: Wednesday 8.00-9.00pm
Dates: 6 Week Course October 5 - November 9 2016
