Two Part Course in the Foundations of Meditation
In the last century science has proven the brain is elastic and therefore able to be trained and molded. This idea however is far from being a revelation. Buddhist monks and serious yoga practitioners did not require science to prove what they have been practicing and benefiting from for thousands of years. The enormously powerful skill of meditation was not cultivated to be under utilized in the simple management of relaxation and stress reduction. It was practiced and perfected to gain deep insight into the workings of mind and into the nature of perception and reality. Persistent and dedicated effort was needed to first understand how the mind was working and then to mold it into how it could work.
This two part course will present the foundations for a very solid meditation practice. We will spent time on the theory of meditation so as to understand why and how we are to establish such a practice. Then we will spend time in the practice itself. The practice will fuel the knowledge and then further the practice.
Come and begin this life skill that will undoubtedly change the way your mind processes.
