What we think of as “meditation” is mainly Buddhist and Taoist sitting meditation techniques. When these were created, two or three thousand years ago, everyday life was simpler than today - infinitely simpler. Meditation was much easier to experience. So while these techniques carry the essence of mediation, they are often not easy for the busy, fragmented Western mind. As a result, many people in the West try to meditate, find it hard, and give up. There’s good news: they just don’t know the right technique. There's more to meditation than sitting still.
In this course, one of my whole series of personal development workshops, you will experience a wide variety of fun and easy meditation techniques especially designed for the Western mind. These support silent sitting with sound, dance, movement and visualisation. There will also be some guided meditations to help you understand what meditation really is. Meditation is the ultimate self-help tool, an essential component in all types of personal development and inner healing work.
(There’s nothing strenuous, but some of the dance meditations need normal mobility. Please ring me if in doubt.)
The miracle is not to walk on water. The miracle is to walk on the green earth in the present moment, to appreciate the peace and beauty that are available now.
