Meditation is an ancient practice, found in all the world’s religious traditions, linking the hearts and minds of practitioners to sources of guidance, inspiration, and/or the Divine. Modern scientific and medical research are demonstration the incredible health benefits of mediation for the brain and physiology. Beyond the physiological level, through meditation we can deepen our self-awareness and gain mastery over our minds. Dysfunctional patterns at the level of thought, feeling, and behavior create attachment, identification, suffering, and entanglement. The Ancient Yogi’s recognized that the root of these dysfunctional patterns is the conditioned mind. They developed the sequence of meditation to understand, transform, and ultimately master the mind. Mastering the mind, according to the Ancients is the path to Self or God realization, fulfillment, and ultimate liberation. In this session we will:
- study the last 4 limbs of Patanjali’s Astanga Yoga
- learn methods of practice from the Yoga Tradition of Meditation
- explore how to use these methods to directly influence our thoughts, feeling, and behavior
Lecture and practice.
