Meditating together recharges the batteries, improves concentration, reinforces and maintains the motivation to continue the individual practice of meditation. No previous experience is required to attend these sessions. No specific clothing required, just come in normal comfortable clothing and remove outdoor footwear.
The two meditation facilitators who will take turns are Daniela and Karuna.
Description of some meditation techniques offered during the upcoming Sunday mornings:
Toning most frequently describes the use of elongated vowel sounds to create resonance, harmony and balance. It is the basis for producing vibrational shifts for health and transformation. Toning is a simple and natural concept and a powerful tool to resonate our physical and subtle bodies.
As we project our sounds on the center line of our bodies for, we automatically draw all of our subtle bodies into alignment leaving us remarkably centered and aligned. During this mediation we will tone one or several sacred vowels (like OM) for 30 – 40 minutes and come into silence afterwards.
5 Tibetan Seed Syllables of the Warrior Mind:
According to the ancient Bon Buddhist tradition, the first sounds that arose from the essence were five seed syllables. These syllables are known as warrior syllables. The term warrior refers tot he ability to conquer the forces of negativity. Sacred sound has the power to eliminate obstacles, clear emotional blocks and eliminate negative thoughts that prevent us from being our authentic self in any given moment.
In the practice we chant each syllable in sequence (A – OM – HUNG – RAM – DZA), focusing on a corresponding energy center in the body, and repeating the sequence. You are invited to bring your personal intentions to the practice, what you would like to open, clear and transform within yourselves.
Meditation with OM, the primordial sound, the source of all other sounds, and the source of all creation. Tuning in to OM brings about inner peace, mental clarity, emotional freedom and physical health. We will sit in a circle and chant OM continuously for minimum 30 minutes with our individual breath length and pitch.
