Free Guided Meditation
Join us for a Guided Meditation and meet with other like minded individuals. This is suitable for everybody and may help you to gain some key points to starting your own meditation practice. All are welcome and we offer this as a complimentary service to the community. This session is led by our founder, Aditya (Adi) Gir (shown in the photograph). Originally from India, Adi believes that we all need to be more mindful especially in these times. A regular practice of meditation helps us to achieve that goal. Experience it for yourself. 8:30 - 9:00 Guided Meditation 9:00 - 9:30 Short Talk / Discussion / Meet & Greet Feel free to attend either one of the above. Of course, both will be better! About Meditation Meditation is the 7th of 8 stages of Yoga (Ashtanga). The previous 6 stages are useful to set a good foundation for a sustainable meditation practice. Often times we try to meditate, but give up because it ends up being too difficult. The 3rd and 4th stages of Yoga are physical practices, Yoga Asanas (postures) and Pranayama (conscious breathing). Yoga asanas are what you might practice in a typical Yoga class. However, this is only one stage of Yoga and is generally not enough to set a foundation for meditation. In order to succeed in meditation we must incorporate all aspects of Yoga. The 8 stages are: 1. Yamas (ethical codes - social restraints) 2. Niyamas (moral codes - self-disciplines) 3. Asanas (postures) 4. Pranayama (conscious breathing or regulation of breath) 5. Pratyahara (withdrawal of the senses) 6. Dharana (concentration) 7. Dhyana (meditation) 8. Samadhi (liberation)
