What is Meditation?
Meditation is the journey of self-discovery, where we gain insight into our spiritual nature and it takes us into an inner place where all the magic happens: we find inner peace, inner strength, become intuitive, more compassionate, more grounded.
Who benefits from the class?
Great for those who are new to meditation or would like to learn new / different techniques to help getting into a meditative state or for those who are ready to begin their self-discovery and / or you want to try meditation as part of their mental well-being practices.
Meditation has got multiple benefits from stress reduction to increased self-awareness and all the yogis, yoginis, many of the greatest athletes, leaders and entrepreneurs are encouraging us to practice meditation in order to tap into our latent potentials and initiate a deep, inner transformation that has a positive impact on our daily life as well by becoming more focused, confident and centred.
Most of us are familiar with the term of 'mindfulness' and its ideology of staying fully engaged with the present without being distracted by our, often unhelpful, thoughts about the past or future. Meditation is the a natural next-step after learning how to be mindful.
During meditation our mind becomes more receptive, open, creative and less critical. We dip into a lighter state of awareness, we become more intuitive, our self-awareness grows, we cultivate compassion, kindness. With practice we can transcend into an even deeper state of awareness where all the real 'magic' happens; feeling the connection with everything around us, feeling love and bliss and we become more grounded and a better human being altogether.
Regardless our motives to meditate; weather it is for spiritual reasons in order to discover our True Self or it is a tool for personal growth to help us becoming a better version of ourselves, developing a meditation practice is beneficial for each and every one of us. It is not an easy journey as it can be very emotional at times and requires self-discipline, but once you start experiencing the benefits you will not want to stop.
In the past 4 years I have been following a daily meditation practice that became the cornerstone of my mental wellbeing. It helped me through the times when I developed severe anxiety and it also became the powerhouse of my deep desire to get to know myself without my ego or identity I was, and to a certain degree still am attached to. I find meditation empowering as it is helping me to become the person I want to be by taking control and shaping my own path.
I got curious about various meditation techniques and ancient wisdom traditions and wanted to know more about them so I completed trainings to learn the Silva Method, the method that kickstarted the founder of Mindvalley, Vishen Lakhiani's amazing journey; I took a course on Present Control that is based on Echart Tolle's teachings; enrolled into an Atma Kriya Meditation Teacher Training with Yogi Ashokananda; entirely enjoyed a course with Raja Choudhury, an amazing tantric teacher who initiated us into some esoteric meditation techniques and I also attended a 10 day silent Vipassana meditation course that thought us one of India's most ancient meditation techniques.
