Meditation I & II and Personalized Practices
The material offered in Meditation I & II is for students who are ready to deliberately embrace a more Peaceful existence. Meditation I is our foundational class that shows students how to meditate effortlessly, and how to cultivate—and retain—a living spiritual practice. Meditation II offers classes in additional meditation techniques: 1) A visual meditation practice (Tratak) which develops the power of concentration and deepens our ability to focus and have greater awareness in daily life. 2) A breathing meditation (Pranayama) which detoxifies the body, attunes oneself to a higher rhythm, and captures the vital force within to gain needed energy. 3) A Shakti meditation practice to connect with the universal principle of grace. Shakti is that universal force pervading everything in the universe.
Upon completion of the course students will apply for their personalized individual practices. Once they become regular in the preparatory techniques taught in this course, students will then receive their personally designed practices. The identity of each student, and his/her life purpose, is meditated on in a deep meditation and a specific set of practices are created to aid in the individual’s personal unfoldment. This course is for students who are looking to evolve in the understanding that they are their own Gurus. Full course (6, 2-hour classes) and personalized practices – $675. No refunds will be given after the start of the first class.
