Life's not easy sometimes, we can get tossed about and not know which way to go. Lucky for us though, daily meditation is one of the best and most simple tools for helping us navigate choppy waters and truly appreciate the good times. This course helps individuals establish an ongoing meditation practice in a simple, lighthearted environment. This course starts at 6pm on October 17 at the Russell Boating Club and runs for six weeks. During the course, you will learn four core meditation techniques and understand their aspects and relationships to individuals and the world. We will also have teachings and discussion on meditation, where it comes from, what the present moment actually is and why being there is helpful as well as physiology, neurology and behaviour, wisdom and compassion, and how we can generate more skilful behaviour patterns. Each week you will get take-home material to read as well as written meditation instructions. Throughout the course, I draw on lessons and theories that have been gained from Buddhism and other world religions, modern science and philosophy, indigenous knowledge systems, secular mindfulness and my own learning and observation, to bring you a course that is fully encompassing and aligned with our present day lives. By learning to listen to yourself during your meditation practice, you will start to unwrap the layers of your life and your thoughts and behaviours that will allow you to know yourself on a deeper and more harmonious level. To some, this can sound scary, especially if we have been pushing that side of us away for many years. Rest assured though that these meditation techniques are a gentle way to start this process and they will encourage learnings to happen in timeframes that are best for you. Everyone has their own reasons for learning meditation. Come with your reason and we can turn it into the energy to help you succeed with your new skill and build a flourishing new life.
