This three-part series of one-hour sessions will introduce the basics of meditation, including the principles of mindfulness, posture, breathing, and our relationship to the three main aspects of our human nature: body, heart, and mind. Its purpose is to develop a strong inner foundation, which is always important, but especially now in dealing with quarantine and isolation brought on by the pandemic.
Each interactive session will be broken into four parts:
1) “Warm-up”/”Entering the Meditation Room,” where we’ll listen to peaceful music or other sounds, and check in with ourselves and each other through quiet conversation and a brief relaxation technique
2) Introduction to a different key aspect of meditation
3) a Guided Meditation practice session
4) Discussion of the experience, feedback, and follow-up
Session 1: Introduction to “Mindfulness and More”; “The Body and Its Ground” (Posture and “taking your seat”; Body-scan meditation; walking meditation; free movement, including lessons from Tai Chi, such as “rooting,” kidney point/”Bubbling Well” and the idea that “the whole body has mind” and what that means).
