Meditation has been proven time and again for its ability to transform health issues, awaken stillness and peace, and provide a window to see the true nature of reality. Through the practice of meditation you can identify and release the root cause of stress, anxiety and tension which lead to mental, emotional and physical pain, dysfunction and disease.
The practice of meditation allows you to observe your thoughts, feelings and body sensations without judgement and comparison of past experiences. Observing yourself in this way creates much needed awareness to respond and take action to situations in a refreshingly new way, rather than reacting out of a habitual patterns that limit your experience of life. Throughout the 6 week process, you will discover how to activate your bodies natural release mechanisms through Yoga and Tai Chi postures. These postures target specific muscles that illicit a tremor response. The tremor process allows you to experience silent seated meditation with much greater ease and comfort. Seated meditation becomes effortless once you release the excessive charge in the body that is often responsible for overstimulating the mind.
Meditation is a natural process leading to a deep connection of who you are and your purpose in this life. It also creates a peaceful acceptance of the ordinary tasks that accompany everyday living. Through meditation you can drop your story and step fully into the power of the present moment which provides inner space to bounce back from stressful situations, access infinite creativity, and connect with a sense of peace no matter what your life situation. Within the 6 week course we invite you to reconnect your bodymind and surrender to the journey from your head to your heart.
