About the course:
This is a mind/body restorative + meditation program.
The process of turning the mind inwards:
Pratyahara - sense withdrawal (inner focus/mind training)
Dharana - concentration (developing one-pointedness)
Dhyana - meditation (uninterrupted flow of concentration)
The meditation time is built over the 4 weeks from 10 to 30 minutes.
Depth of meditational state is increased through practice hence students are encouraged to set apart some time for home practice each day to enhance and deepen their experience of meditation.
Each week the following practices will be offered:
Supported asanas (postures) in preparation to sitting, to calm the mind and body.
To further calm the mind and the body. To begin the process of observation.
A simple relaxation technique will be presented that can be used in any situation to calm your mind. In class we will use it to enter a meditative state.
We gradually practise and master the steps, which lead to a meditational state:

"When the senses are stilled, when the mind is at rest, when the intellect wavers not, then, say the wise, is reached the highest stage. He who attains this steady control of the senses and mind is free
