An Introduction to Meditation
A 4 week course offered at Mandira Spiritual Centre, Utrecht
Over the past decade, most of us have got to hear more and more about the benefits of meditation.
Including a meditation practice in our daily lives is often recommended, to relieve stress, tensions and bring greater peace of mind.
Both long term meditators and scientists interested in the effects of meditation have evidence to show that the way our brains function can be influenced to improve the quality of our lives. A regular practice of meditation is one of the well known ways to achieve this.
In this series of 4 sessions you will be introduced to some well known meditation techniques from different traditions.
The course is structured for beginners who have little or no experience of meditation and are looking for ways to orient themselves in the different teachings to find out which works best for themselves in their current situation in life.
The excercises are suitable for people who suffer from chronic pain and those who are unable to sit up for long periods of time. These practices can be done sitting cross legged on the floor/cushion or sitting on a chair.
All sessions will begin with a short introduction to what the technique is about and which tradition it comes from. We may also do a few breathing excercises or yoga movements to prepare the body for meditation.
At the end of each session there will be time for question and answers about the practice and also to exchange with each other about our experience during the practice.
The sessions will be conducted in English by Sumati Nair.
Sumati comes originally from S.India and has a Masters degree in Indian philosophy. She is a trained Iyengar yoga teacher. She has been teaching asana practice, yoga philosophy and meditation over the past 20 years in different yoga schools and yoga teacher training programmes in the Netherlands. She is a longstanding practitioner of meditaion and wishes to share her insights.
