Awakening Wisdom

~ Introduction to Meditation ~

With Megan Lees

May 1st – June 5th 

& Guided Outdoor Meditation Retreat Sunday June 9th

COURSE OVERVIEW

It can be difficult to start a meditation practice, and even more difficult to maintain it. In this series, we will practice yoga and pranayama which will increase our body awareness. Yoga can help us to find a comfortable meditation seat while focusing on our breath will calm the mind and our nervous system.

This series is designed for beginners and those who already have a meditation practice. Participants will learn techniques that are beneficial to any level of practitioner.

We will meet on Wednesday evening in Centerville from 6:30-7:30 PM. Participants will also have access to Monday night meditation classes with Bryson Newell from 6:30-7:30 PM via Zoom.

At the conclusion of our sessions, we will have a mini retreat on Sunday, June 9th from 9 AM- 2 PM in Centerville. The retreat will include yoga, breath-work, seated meditation, silent walking meditation, and journaling. Lunch will be provided.

WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THIS COURSE?

Guided meditations.

Instructions for practicing in daily life.

The central practice of mindfulness meditation, which is integral to Buddhism, has been shown to decrease levels of stress and anxiety. You will learn how to calm the mind and relax the body. The course will also teach traditional postures and breathing practices. At the completion of the course, you will have a strong foundation on which to build and develop a meditation practice.

Should participants wish to continue studying at Vidya Method, then the completion of this course would open the door to the many other offerings in the Foundation of Buddhist Thought series. All levels welcome!
