Meditation & Self-Enquiry - 5 Week Series (Mondays: Sept. 21 - Oct. 19 )

Join us in a series of 5 Monday evenings to explore and practice meditation as it is explained and understood in the classical traditions of Buddhism & Yoga. This will be a cumulative series, each week building upon the last, slowly guiding you through the foundational basics to develop your own meditation and self-enquiry practice.

We will work with 5 different meditation techniques that strengthen specific aspects and inner capacities, helping us to deepen our self-knowing, presence and peace of mind. The techniques taught are derived from various traditions but will complement each other and eventually all lead in the same direction – the revelation of our true nature.

The techniques include: Anapanasati, Vipassana, Samyama, Nada Yoga, Japa, Walking Meditation, Sufi Meditation, Mindfulness & Atma Vichara.

Everyone is welcome, no previous meditation experience is required – just bring openness and a beginners mind.

Dates: 5 Mondays - Sept. 21 - Oct 19: 8-9:15 pm

The 'Kleshas' (Overcoming the 5 Obstacles) - 5 Week Series (Tuesdays: Sept. 22 - Oct. 20)

In these 5 classes we will move through an exploration of the KLESHAS, which in Yoga are considered as the main obstacles in our lives and evolution. According to Patanjali's Yoga Sutras there are five Kleshas, or afflictions, that can act as roadblocks along our path of self-knowing and discovery, and result in staying bound to patterns and cycles of suffering. By understanding the Kleshas and developing lived practices of awareness to uproot their presence in our lives, we start to experience more freedom and harmony.

Each week will be dedicated to exploring one of the 5 Kleshas and the influences it has upon your life. You will learn and practice tools (both on and off the mat) to cultivate mindfulness and release embedded ties to these afflictions.

The 5 Kleshas
