The great spiritual traditions of both East and West have throughout the ages promoted various forms of meditation as important practices to foster spiritual awakening and development. As an independent practice, to supplement other spiritual or religious practices, for stress management and relaxation, or all of the above, this course will provide the theoretical framework and practical technique for a traditional yoga-based practice derived from an ancient and time-honored Himalayan tradition. Included will be basic breathing and stress reduction techniques. They lay the foundation for access to avenues leading to the stillness within.
The basic class consists of 4 two-hour sessions meeting once a week for 4 consecutive weeks. The series is cumulative, so signing up for individual sessions is not available, and please do not sign-up unless you can commit to at least 3 of the sessions. $100.00 for the series.
