Japanese Meditation Classes by Lift Your Spirit
Develop an inner quiet that is restorative and calming.
Many of us are living busy lives and tend to often be in our heads with a constant stream of thoughts. We often forget to check in with ourselves, to be present and aware of whom we truly are.
Lift Your Spirit’s Japanese Meditation Classes offer an opportunity to create a space where you allow yourself to spend quiet time to let go of the outside world and to practice techniques that help you to discipline the mind and to balance and connect mind, body and spirit.
The classes are led by Tessa van Keeken, qualified Holistic Therapist, Life Coach, NLP Practitioner and Reiki Master & Teacher.
Structure of the Meditation Classes:
Each class is run as a complete meditation practice and will include discussion of the practices, guided meditations, and contemplation. The practices used aim to create balance between body and mind.
The classes are open to everyone who is interested in meditation, whether you are a complete beginner or have experience with meditation.
Japanese Meditation Practices:
The meditation practices used in these classes are based on the Japanese Energetic System, also called The Three Diamonds. The focus is on three energy centres, the Hara (belly), the head and the heart.
In Japanese meditation practices the body-mind connection is central: the techniques used help you to get out of your head and bring your awareness back into your body. This helps focus the mind and helps you to become more grounded and present.
The techniques used are characterised by simplicity. Elements we work with include utilising breath, Ki (energy) cultivation and awareness, precepts (way of being).
