Meditation & Mindfulness Training Series

Meditation For Everyone

Meditation is to bring the mind to rest single pointedly on a chosen object or idea. Whether you are new to meditation or seeking to deepen your practice, this course will be beneficial for you. The focus of the course is on the Four Foundations of Mindfulness.

The Four Foundations of Mindfulness come from a teaching of the Buddha called the Satipatthana. Satipatthana is the establishment or the arousing of mindfulness. In the Four Foundations of Satipatthana, the Buddha teaches that a meditator should be mindful of:

• their body
• their feelings or sensations of the body
• their mind
• the phenomena their mind encounters

We will be using the following aspects of meditation to help guide us:

Mindfulness

Mindfulness is the basic human ability to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we’re doing, and not overly reactive or overwhelmed by what’s going on around us or inside of us. While mindfulness is innate, it is essential to strengthen it through study and practice.

Attending a weekly class is a great way to establish a practice and or strengthen an existing one. By attending a class, we can draw on the support of a group and we are more likely to hold ourselves accountable and thus create a healthy habit.

Shamatha

In order to direct our attention to the Four Foundations we will need instruction on Shamatha, or calm abiding meditation.

Shamatha is really the basis of most meditative practices. When one cultivates Shamatha as a daily practice the mind and body become less restless, negative thoughts begin to dissipate and our mood will naturally boost. While we can apply the concentration of Shamatha to any practice or activity, we will learn about and meditate on the Four Foundations of Mindfulness.

Somatic Fascial Restructuring

Personalized Program

Through a series of somatic lessons we will begin to understand our habits that are causing us chronic pain and learn how to overcome them. Personalized somatic lessons will help us to discover our bodies’ natural ease of movement.

Often our current habits and our environment prevent us from moving in the natural way the body is designed to move. We tend to interfere with our bodies instead of listening to the needs of our body and thus it is not uncommon to develop movement patterns that cause us chronic pain.

The program includes:

• Personal assessment
• Weekly private sessions via Zoom
• Customized at-home program developed for you based on my assessment and your stated goals

Benefits

Somatic Fascia Restructuring reestablishes your natural viscus and elastic fascial structure which results in harmonious movement. As you become more fascially driven, less lactic acid is produced from overactive muscles, thus you generate a type of springy, effortless ease in movement.

12 Week Program

In twelve weeks, you will:

• Discover your body’s natural holistic connection

• Begin to experience your body as a fascial tensegrity structure, thus relating to your body more holistically and dynamically

• Re-establish your fascial body through our somatic awareness movement curriculum specifically designed to reestablish your fascial body

• Learn specific breathing and embodiment methods to help you stay centered, calm, and focused

• Learn how to utilize your body’s fascial network to create an internal brace and response to movement

yoga centerville

Somatic Fascia Restructuring is not a complicated method, but it does take work and consistent effort. Once your fascia has restructured then you will not need to commit much time at all to keep it conditioned.

Most of the work is done in the first twelve weeks and that is why private lessons are invaluable and highly recommend.  Once you learn the method and your fascia connections are healthy you may then seamlessly incorporate it into your daily life and exercise programs.
