Introductory Meditation Course
4 Week Meditation Course -
In this introduction to meditation, participants learn the benefits of meditation, as well as an introduction to different types of meditation. Students learn to recognize the primary stress responses, and how those responses immediately impact our physiology. Students are given tools to increase awareness of these responses with specific attention to recognizing the “fight/flight/freeze: response, and how to change it.
The course begins with a short educational segment on meditation. There is an instruction to mantra meditation technique and attendees will be led through it at each session. Breathing techniques (Pranayam) are part of each session’s practice. Chair Yoga sequence per your request before guided meditation is available as part of the curricula.
Each class ends with intention setting for vibrant health, mental clarity, and greater peace and well-being. Students also learn what experiences to expect during meditation and how to deepen their home practice.
The weekly practical meditation experience helps students not only create a home practice but encourages mindful awareness at the office with their fellow employees.
Receive clear guidance for living a spiritual life in our secular world.
