NEW 8-WEEK SESSION STARTING ON WEDNESDAY JANUARY 5TH 2022

     On The Theme

MEDITATION COMES IN MANY FORMS. SERVE YOURSELF A VARIED MENU…

  1. Mindfully going over a past moment or encounter (Reflection)
    Reflection comes naturally to us, especially when we wake up in the morning. Let it happen. ‘
    Mindfully’ means without self-bashing.

  1. Calming the Mind, or a mix of Body Scan, Mind Scan, and Letting Go
    Calming the Mind (Samatha) is an integral part of Vipassana Meditation.
  1. Mulling over the meaning of of something (Contemplation)
    A retreat often starts with a talk. The expectation for the following meditation sessions is for participants to digest it. This is done with thinking. Thinking can have a place in meditation.
  1. Following up on an insight (Creative Meditation)
    Insights sometimes come spontaneously and unexpectedly. They can also come in dreams. Honour them.
    They may be introducing a new chapter in your book of life.

  2. Focusing intentionally on love and kindness, including toward oneself (Positivity) 
    The love that comes from a feeling of oneness with other living beings is at the heart of what is meant by ‘Awakening’ in the Zen tradition.

  3. Experiencing oneness with the breath (Breath Meditation)
    Breathing is not something we do; it is a part of who we are.
  1. Allowing a mantra or a song to guide your meditation (Mantra Meditation)
    Nature sings—in the flowing stream, in birdcalls, and in the wind through the pines. Join and sing along!
  2.  Non-dualistic Awareness (Non-verbal Experiencing)
    Some people take meditation to mean stopping all mental activity—Mission Impossible!
    Instead replace thinking with wide-open awareness.

A healthy body needs a variety of foods such as proteins, carbs, minerals, vitamins, etc.
A healthy mind is no different in its requirement for variety…
