6 OPPORTUNITES TO MEDITATE EACH WEEK

 

Mondays, 11:45 - 12:30
As humans, we all have a vibrational frequency. This vibrational frequency can be tuned with sound. When the body falls out of tune, feelings of unhappiness, impatience, and frustration often appear. Vibrational sound baths give the body a frequency tune-up, bringing energy back in alignment with feelings of peace and happiness. In addition, the sounds produced during vibrational sound baths provide the mind with a point of focus. Racing thoughts are quieted as the mind attempts to recognize patterns within the sounds being played. Eventually, the mind lets go and a deep meditative state follows. This is a great mid-day class that can help increase creativity & connection and decrease stress & anxiety.
Mondays, 6:30 - 7:00pm
Mindfulness is a quality we already possess. It can also be cultivated through practice. Mindfulness is often described as the act of paying attention on purpose, deeply, and without judgment to whatever arises in the present moment. By doing so, we live more fully, rather than feeling stuck in "automatic pilot." Our Monday evening meditation class is designed to develop the skill of paying attention to our inner and outer experiences with acceptance, patience, and compassion. In recent years, there has been a significant increase in the volume of research surrounding mindfulness practice and how it helps us to live healthier, happier lives. Join us!
Wednesdays, 11:45 - 12:30
Restore your calm and reenergize during this 45 minute Yoga Nidra class. The practice of Yoga Nidra or “Yogic Sleep” is a systematic meditation technique used to induce complete physical, mental and emotional relaxation. In this class we will begin by applying therapeutic grade essential oils specific to the season before lying down on our backs for guided meditation, breathwork and visualization. We use bolsters, blankets and eye pillows to support and re-align the body, mind and spirit. The ancient yogis say that just 30 minutes of this practice is like getting two hours of restful sleep. Take a break during your day to experience greater insight, focus and clarity. You are encouraged to wear clothing that you find relaxing, non-constricting and comforting, although the beauty of yoga nidra is that you can come dressed as you are. You need just bring an open mind to the profoundly healing benefits of this restorative practice.
This is an all-levels meditation class focused on addiction and recovery. Our goal will be to use meditation as a way to explore and understand the root nature of any addiction and to then use this as a way to truly transform recovery into a beautiful lifestyle. Each class will include a brief teaching (dharma), seated meditation, and open sharing/discussion. In this class you will first learn how to relax the mind, body and spirit through the inhale and exhale of one single breath. No more, no less. Similar to the time-tested “One day at a time”, we should view all meditation as “one breath at a time”. That is all it takes! As we slowly build our ability to quietly sit, our stillness of mind allows us to remember who we truly are...a person who can live in a world where we simply no longer need our addictions.

Thursdays, 7:00 - 7:30pm
There are different ways to focus the mind, and many points of concentration that can lead the mind to a place of clarity and tranquility. When the names and forms of God are the tools of meditation, it becomes bhakti marga or the path to realization through the adoration of the Divine. The Thursday evening meditation class will explore sounds (the Goddess), kirtan (the singing of the names of God), mantra japa (the repetition of mantra), and murti (focus on the personified form) as ways of quieting and clearing the vrittis in order to witness the always-present still point that is our inner truth.
Sundays, 10:30 - 11:30am
Our Sunday morning meditation is a time and a space for you to stop for a moment, to catch your breath and to remember your essential nature, which is deep peace, love, compassion, strength and power. Insight Meditation, or Vipassana, is the ultimate expression of Socrates' dictum, "know thyself." It's based on the Buddha's original teaching that the cause of suffering can actually be erased when we see our True nature. This teaching means that our happiness does not depend on manipulating the external world, it depends on seeing ourselves clearly, as we really are. It's a method for purifying the mind of the mental factors that cause suffering.
