Meditation Classes and Workshops
Meditation is a very personal and very valuable tool for everyone to have as they navigate through this place we call life.
Meditation is a practice in which an individual trains the mind or induces a mode of consciousness, either to realize some benefitor as an end in itself.
The term meditation refers to a broad variety of practices (much like the term sports) that includes techniques designed to promote relaxation, build internal energy (chi, ki, prana, etc.) and develop compassion, love, patience, generosity and forgiveness. A particularly ambitious form of meditation aims at effortlessly sustained single-pointed concentrationsingle-pointed analysis, meant to enable its practitioner to enjoy an indestructible sense of well-being while engaging in any life activity.
Meditation often involves an internal effort to self-regulate the mind in some way. Meditation can help clear the mind and ease many health issues, such as high blood pressure, depression, and anxiety to name a few (Yoga Journal). It may be done sitting, or in an active way, for instance Buddhist monks involve awareness in their day-to-day activities as a form of mind-training. Prayer beads or other ritual objects are commonly used during meditation in order to keep track of or remind the practitioner about some aspect of the training. Meditation may involve generating an emotional state for the purpose of analyzing that state — such as anger, hatred, etc. — or cultivating particular mental response to various phenomena, such as compassion. The term “meditation” can refer to the state itself, as well as to practices or techniques employed to cultivate the state. In brief, there are dozens of specific styles of meditation practice; the word meditation may carry different meanings in different contexts. Meditation has been practiced since antiquity as a component of numerous religious traditions and beliefs.
Meditation however can take on MANY forms and practices! Many believe that meditation is simply sitting or lying down and being in the stillness. I specialize in teaching two different, more unique styles of meditation.
MOVING MEDITATION – Often the thing many of us are lacking in our lives, is a true connection with our bodies. Through moving meditations we have the ability to reconnect with our bodies, while we are also opening up our souls to wisdom and direction from the Universe. Tai Chi can be used as a form of moving meditation. Movements are often very specific, meant to open a particular chakra or connection to the world outside, while others are designed to move us inward, and really feel what it’s like to BE in our bodies!
GUIDED MEDITATION – Through utilizing hypnotic skills and specific NLP techniques, we can open ourselves up to guidance in finding and healing subconscious wounds, finding support with goals and decisions, or to find direction and understanding with something that is going on in our lives. Guided meditation can be incredibly effective to use as a daily or weekly tool to keep you on track towards your life goals or healing practice.
