On the schedule: meditation courses

by Delight Yoga, 24-Feb-2017

When you practice meditation on a regular basis, you can experience beautiful benefits. From better concentration to less stress. But it needs practice! That's why we are offering four of our weekly meditation classes in a course format. You can follow them in sequence as a three/four month-course or take each separately—depending on your preference and wishes. 
Each one of these courses will run each month for 4 or 5 weeks. It includes:

- The actual weekly class

- Advice for integrating meditation into your everyday life 

- Guidance for how to establish a daily meditation habit throughout the rest of week 

- Access to guided meditations on audio, in collaboration with bodhi


Regular class fees apply. Delight Members can join these courses without any extra costs.

You can book the course through the regular schedule a week before the course starts (there are no walk-ins for this course). We aim to create a personal, safe and open atmosphere where you can learn from each other and grow.


Our Meditation Courses

Meditation: The Fundamentals (beginners)
This course will establish all the fundamentals needed to give you the confidence to practice meditation. It will explore both mindfulness and awareness, using the breath as a support to help settle the mind, as well as exploring just allowing yourself to be, to rest, just as you are.
Wednesdays 18:30-19:30
5 weeks, March 1st (started)
4 weeks, April 5th (started)
5 weeks, starting May 3rd 

Meditation: Exploring the Senses (all levels)
This course will explore using the senses (primarily sound, sight and physical sensations) as a support for meditation. This practice helps to integrate the mindfulness, awareness and spaciousness of meditation into all situations in everyday life. It is helpful if students have had some previous grounding in meditation (focusing on the breath for example) as a basis for this course.
Wednesdays 20.00 - 21.00
5 weeks, March 1st (started)

Meditation: Exploring Thoughts & Emotions (experienced)
This course will explore developing a different relationship with our thoughts and emotions, to be able to make friends them and use them to our advantage, instead of being used by them. It is helpful if students have had previous experience in meditation, preferably taking the two previous courses, The Fundamentals and Exploring the Senses.
Tuesdays 20.00 - 21.00
4 weeks, April 4th (started)
5 weeks, starting May 2nd

We also offer a Loving Kindness meditation course which can be taken at any time, on its own or alongside the other 4-week meditation courses.

Loving Kindness (all levels)
This course will explore gently cultivating loving-kindness towards oneself and others.  The intention of this practice is to send well-being and happiness to oneself and the world around us. It is a wonderful way to begin to plant the seeds of love within that will also impact our way of being in our lives. It is helpful if students have had some previous grounding in meditation (focusing on the breath for example) as a basis for this course.
Tuesdays 18.30 - 19.30 
4 weeks, March 7th (started)
4 weeks, April 4th (started)

Next to these courses we also offer a regular Awareness Meditation (all levels) class with Rolandjan Van Mulligen, Mondays 20.00 - 21.00.

All meditation classes are at the Nieuwe Achtergracht.


These courses ask for your commitment 

For the best experience of you and your group, it is required that you are able join all classes in this course. Can't you join one of the classes because of vacation, work trips, etc? Please, give your spot to someone that is dedicated to join all classes and plan the evenings free for next course, starting every first week of the month.
