“My first meditation experience felt like high-school detention, seriously. The minutes felt like hours and I squirmed and suffered the entire time. Now, some 6 years later, getting on my cushion feels like coming home in a way I can’t describe and in a way coming home has never felt before. It doesn’t mean that it’s not a struggle to find the time to sit, and it doesn’t mean that life is a walk in the park. But there’s something to be said for the practice.” –Nancey Cohen
In this series, we will explore meditation theories and offer a variety of basic techniques. Each class will include an opening discussion with class engagement, a description of the meditation style we’ll practice, a 30-minute guided meditation, and time for questions afterwards. Each class stands on its own, which means you can miss a class without feeling as though you’ve missed an important segment of the series.
The class syllabus is as follows:
Week 1: Keys to a Successful Practice, Meditation Theory, Concentration & Breath-Focused Meditation
Week 2: Loving Kindness Meditation
Week 3: Moving Meditation
Week 4: Chakra Meditation
Week 5: Chanting the Bija Mantras
Week 6: Yoga Nidra
No prior experience necessary. Everybody is welcome. Every BODY is welcome.
