Friday evening will be a 2-hour class and meditation introducing Padma Meditation.
Saturday will start with a lesson on what meditation is and how to sit, followed by a short silent meditation. Padma will then 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.
Padma will offer a discourse of the 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 days will conclude with a guided meditation, directing the mind’s attention towards inner self-awareness and lasting peace.
Sunday will be a deepening into meditation practice and of how the philosophy of meditation applies to and can deeply transform your capacity to be free and happy every day. There will be group exercises to empower you with skills of expanding your awareness and perception. You’ll learn easy and effective skills for home practice.
