Introduction to Meditation
This is a three-class series, held on the first three Tuesday mornings each month from 7 - 8 am.
During this introduction to the process of meditation, participants will be offered the basic theory of the meditation practice, methods of establishing an individualized meditation seat/posture, methods of relaxation, methods of breath practice, and experiences that will prepare participants to begin their meditation journey.
These three sessions will invite participants to build their practice from class to class in a specific sequence with emphasis on the experiences of their meditation. Why should I as a person who has never meditated before learn how to meditate? Meditation offers an opportunity for self care of the mind and spirit, an opportunity to more fully rest, an opportunity for a change of pace set by our current and past distractions.
In this three-session Beginning Meditation course with Greg Hermann you will learn the following:
--the asana postures for establishing stillness in a seated position --the five qualities of healthy diaphragmatic breathing
--three systematic relaxation methods --the secret of stilling the "monkey" mind
--the mantra/sound that establishes a smooth and continuous breath
Have a meditation cushion with you when you join the class.
