This six week meditation course aims to provide participants with a series of effective meditation & mindfulness techniques designed to bring greater levels of spiritual awareness and enlightenment into their daily lives.
This is a course that is entirely ‘spiritual but not religious’, people from any or no religious background are welcome.
The Six Classes:
June 6th&7th – Class 1: Is your meditation a form of therapy, an art-form or a spiritual practice? – This class looks at three levels meditation. Participants will then be introduced to two simple methods to connect to spiritual forms of awareness in order to 1) Remain centered & balanced even when under high levels of stress & & 2) To tap into an abundance of ever-present forms of happiness.
June 13th&14th – Class 2: Meditating on the awakened present – We talk about being mindful of the present, but what does this really mean in terms of making us more ‘spiritually awakened’ or enlightened? This class offers three ways of relating to the ‘present moment in time’ to help us truly mature and deepen our practice of living in the present, spiritually & dynamically.
June 20th&21st NO CLASS – Summer solstice meditation will be done on this date
June 27th&28th – Class 3: The Four “-lessnesses” of Enlightenment – Spiritual enlightenment means to locate the centre of your awareness in a place that is radically different from the place where it is for most people. One of the difficulties of getting to this ‘awakened space’ is that it is not easy to describe, as it is beyond our usual use of language. One of the best ways to try connect to it is by indicating what it is not. This class looks at four ways of letting go of your everyday identity to reveal your deeper, spiritual identity beneath.
July 4th&5th – Class 4: What lies beyond stillness? – What happens after you have learned to still the mind in meditation? This class looks at how we can use meditation & stilling the mind as an initial gateway to connect to the higher states of creative and ‘enlightened’ consciousness that lie deeper within us, beyond the everyday mind.
July 11th&12th – Class 5: Working with ‘spiritual alchemy’ in meditation – Spiritual energy is all around us & within us, but often it seems like an abstraction, relative to the concrete nature of our everyday life. This class looks at a simple technique for connecting to spiritual energy and bringing it down into our physical body and everyday life in order to affect healing & transformation in a tangible way.
July 18th&19th – Class 6: That which solves all your problems and none – Working with enlightened imperfection – Are you on a quest for enlightened perfection? This class explores what enlightened perfection is, & what it isn’t. We will be meditating how we can start integrate our own ‘enlightened perfection’ in a complementary way with our own imperfection & the imperfection of the world.
