Three Meditations for Inner Joy
Sunday, January 20, 2019
1:00 to 3:30 pm
Meditation is acceptance. It is the acceptance of life within us, without us, and all around us.
Meditation has numerous benefits. It increases cognitive function, improves digestion and sleep, and activates the parasympathetic nervous system, reducing stress, which helps to boost the immune system. And meditation cultivates joy. This workshop, appropriate for beginners, will explore three styles of meditation – breath meditation, mantra meditation, and silent sitting practices. We will begin by warming up the body with slow flow yoga and Qi Gong which prepares us to comfortably sit in stillness. Each meditation will be 10-15 minutes in duration, with structured rest periods between; handouts for each of the meditations will be provided.
