Why do meditation?
Have you always wanted to try meditation? Have you been curious as to what it is all about? Have you been hearing how beneficial it can be to manage stress and anxiety? Have you been put off by previous attempts at a practice like this? Here is your chance. Open your mind and delve in to see literally what makes you tick.
Developing your own meditation practice
This is a session to give you practical tips on developing your own regular meditation practice. You will start the session with some gentle Yoga stretches to prepare your body for sitting quietly which is the first step in any meditation practice. There are well defined steps to develop the discipline to bring you to that quiet space and we will explore them in this session.
Meditation has been proven to reduce stress and to improve the immunity of the body and the mind. Practiced regularly (15-20 minutes per day) it can bring greater clarity to your thinking and help you to gain perspective.
Supported meditation group
Each meditation session (one every 4-6 weeks) will allow you to experience a new type of meditation or an added layer to the meditation that you are working on. The Satyananda system of Yoga takes its practices from the Tantras (practices to expand (transcend) the human experience) and meditation practices are often preceded by Pranayama (Expansion of the Prana or Life-force). These practices will help you with focus and help you to move into the meditation space easier.
This mornings session is in the Cheese Press, Ennistymon.
