Meditation is a way for nourishing and blossoming the divine within you, and self-observation and self-inquiry are the first steps of that inner unfolding. Since all suffering is due to our disconnection with our Self, establishing that connection through meditation you become more you, a better you, a joyful you. We offer guidance on the experience of meditation and a harmonious time-space to support that practice.
Mindfulness meditation is a sitting stillness meditation. A Buddhist practice that brings one’s attention to the internal and external experiences occurring in the present moment, and can be developed through the practice of meditation. Each meditation session is a journey of discovery to understand the basic truth of who we are. In the beginning, the most important lesson of meditation is seeing the movements of the mind. What we are talking about is very practical. Mindfulness meditation practice is simple. And because we are working with the mind that experiences life directly, just by sitting and observing, we are doing the work. “Meditation is not a way of making your mind quiet. It’s a way of entering into the quiet that’s already there – buried under the 50,000 thoughts the average person thinks every day.”
Integral Meditation is a four stages sitting or reclined Budha meditation.It is the process by which momentary engagement is developed. The constant focusing and refocusing—moment to moment—on the object of our awareness. This means directing full awareness upon the object of attention: It helps us to be more detailed employees, better friends, and more attentive parents. Developing this skill weaves a translucent thread of lucidity throughout the fabric of our existence. But most importantly, it allows the fullest expression of ourselves and authentic aspects of our being that we haven’t connected with in a very long time. The challenge lies within the realm of our thoughts, the single biggest distraction from our absorption in the present moment. We are instead pulled into reflections of the past, dreams of the future, and what this means to our present moment experience. It is momentary engagement that is the key to neutralizing our thoughts. By focusing intently upon the task at hand, discursive thinking cannot populate the quiet space of our mind. Judgment ceases. And then, for the moment, we can just be.
Kundalini meditation is both Dynamic and Stillness meditation. Being fully immersed in the shaking and dancing of the first two stages helps to “melt” the rock-like being, wherever the energy flow has been repressed and blocked. Then that energy can flow, through dance and be transformed into bliss and joy. The last two stages enable all this energy to flow vertically, to move upwards into silence. It is a highly effective way of unwinding and letting go at the end of the day.
Chakra Balancing sitting or reclined Buddha meditation. In this healing practice you are guided into deep relaxation. Chakras are wheels of energy and consciousness, located along the central axis of the body that underlie and influence every aspect of our being—physical, energetic, mental, and emotional. We work with the chakras through visualization, sound and chromotherapy. You are led through a journey of embodiment and activation so the energy can flow through releasing any energetic blockages and bringing greater harmony to your body-mind.
