Meditation Course: The Fundamentals
Starting on 26 September 2018 Go to schedule
Presence —the ability to engage fully in the moment—is a skill that everyone needs. But in a world of packed agendas, constantly ringing smart phones and computer alerts, we can all too easily get distracted. As a result, we end up stressed and feeling like we never really engage fully with anything or anyone. The key to presence is the ability to authentically just be in our surroundings, with the people around us, and, most importantly, with ourselves. We are all born with this natural capacity, so we just need to uncover and re-discover it, which we will explore through this experiential meditation course.
What to expect?
In this course, you will:
discover the purpose of meditation: what meditation is and what it is not
understand how meditation works from a scientific and neurobiological perspective
learn how to engage the body’s natural relaxation response in response to stress
master all the fundamental principles you need to be able to practice meditation, in all kinds of circumstances
start to cultivate a different relationship to your thoughts and emotions
develop a deeper understanding of your mind (and heart) and come more into contact with your true self
gain the confidence to practice meditation on your own in all kinds of different circumstances
- be supported in establishing a meditation habit by setting up your own personal habit loop drawing on the recent research from the field of behavioural psychology
The course will run for four weeks and it includes:
the actual weekly class offering an opportunity to learn new aspects of the meditation practice, time to practice together as a group, as well as space to share experiences and ask questions.
- a suggested practice programme for the week in-between the classes including access to guided meditations on audio, as well as practical tips, resources and advice for integrating the practice into your daily life.
Previous students have found that the interaction and connections they make with their fellow meditators in the courses is incredibly rich, and also that having a practice focus for the week helps bring the benefits of the practice into their everyday experience, including their other yoga classes!
The course will be intimate in size (max 12 people) so there will be lots of opportunity for personal attention in a warm, gentle, open and safe atmosphere infused with the spirit of self-compassion.
