I teach live in order to bring in the component of relationship, connection and to offer the space for questions and answers to support students in establishing an effective meditation practice. Effective meditation relieves chronic tension, regulates our nervous systems, calm reactivity, and help us to develop a gentle and compassionate relationship with ourselves over time. By returning to this nature in ourselves we can bring effective changes into our lives and have a more positive effect on the people around us. Meditation returns you to your true nature; the wellspring of your unlimited potential, creativity and compassion. In our personal life challenges and the collective we are faced with stress and anxiety. Our minds are not designed for chronic stress which can create more suffering and interfere with our well-being. The Pillars of Meditation offers the means to return to a peaceful now-presence which is an aspect of your true nature. Mindfulness tools used in meditation can transform emotional patterns to relieve anxiety and restore a sense of calm by creating new neural pathways. Establishing a centering meditation allows you to use the instrument of mind as a vehicle for consciousness. We will work with the basic mindfulness principles as a starting point to unpack the foundational pillars necessary to build and establish a steady and enduring meditation practice together: In this course you will learn: The tools to create the foundation for a daily meditation practice: Pillars of mindfulness as a foundation for mediation practice. Pillars include establishing the witness by employing distance and dispassion, the ability to further the process of discernment and discrimination to favor a process of effortless letting go to come into a peaceful now presence. Teachings and discussion on how to handle the pitfalls and distractions in practice. Silent Meditation Practice: Apanasati meditation (breath anchor) and Mantra meditation (sound anchor). Redirect awareness to ‘let go’ during silent meditation to back out of attachments and aversions, emotions and habituated ego patterns. This course will also be available on the LearnDesk platform.
