Description: Come spend a transformative weekend finding the power of freedom in you. Learn time-tested skills of self-discovery and leave feeling bright, empowered and free!
Friday evening will be a 2-hour class and meditation introducing Padma Meditation.
Saturday morning session will start with a short silent meditation. Padma will then give a lesson on what meditation is and how to sit. She’ll explain the core steps in establishing a good practice and clearly guide you through classical, time-proven techniques. You’ll learn soothing, foundational, breathing techniques and enjoy some focusing sound-vibration meditation. After a short break, Padma will offer a discourse of the key essentials of meditation philosophy. This includes a look at the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali and what the original Sanskrit texts have to say about mind-management and meditation.
After lunch, she’ll then invite an open discussion and there’ll be plenty of time for questions and discussion. We’ll participate in a small group exercise to explore and express our own experiences.
The day will conclude with a guided meditation, directing the mind’s attention towards inner self-awareness and lasting peace.
