The infinite Infinity and the most ruthless insecurity are two sides of the pendulum in which the mind moves. Mind has to be trained, mind has to be talked to; mind is not the master, mind is a servant.
– Yogi Bhajan 5/3/2000
Our minds are vast. Meditation is the way through.
Join Gurushabd Khalsa and Nash D’Souza for a practical immersion into the joys and challenges of meditation. Using teachings from Kundalini Yoga and wisdom from mindfulness meditation, you will:
- clarify and clear your personal challenges with meditation: doubt, self-judgement, guilt, and lack of self-discipline
- deepen your understanding of what is actually happening when you meditate
- understand the technical effects of each element within Kundalini Meditation: mudras, mantras, eye focus, the spine, and time
- orient yourself towards easy-to-use guidelines for assessing your personal practice, and go home with a guide book to track your daily meditations
- re-energize your relationship to meditation
This workshop is for those who are looking to refine their meditation practice, as well as beginners to meditation. You will go home with everything you need to start a daily home practice. Meditations practiced will be from the Kundalini Yoga tradition.
