Have you always wanted to develop a meditation practice but can’t seem to kick start it?
Have you practiced meditation before but never really taken the time to develop a formal practice and study the why behind meditation and why this mindfulness practice works for so many?
This program will help you gain a more complete understanding of meditation practice and the stages of the path, deepen your own practice, and prepare you to continue to level 2 and 3 where you develop your ability to present the teachings in a clear and genuinely helpful way to others.
1. Learn the foundations of meditation practice - overview and background. What exactly is mindfulness and what am i doing when i sit down to meditate?
2. Understand and experience the benefits of meditation practice. Time to seep yourself in practice over the weekend so you experience the benefits firsthand in an immersion setting that you can ask questions based on your experience and explore the technique and practice of Samatha (mindfulness) meditation
3. Overview of the Buddhist path and stages of meditation. (includes Mindfulness, Awareness, Contemplation and Compassion practices)
Recommended for yoga students, yoga teachers, social workers, therapists, school teachers, leaders in any field, etc. Meditation instruction and practice is a beneficial addition to all other modalities, including one's every day life and relationships.
