What we're about

The thing about meditation is: You become more and more you. (David Lynch)

Welcome everyone to our meditation space on Sundays from 5.30 to 7pm at the Yoga & Qigong School of Sumner (http://www.yogaqigong.co.nz (http://www.yogaqigong.co.nz/?fbclid=IwAR2ndWMtQ0OqhOSZ1-N006ljkje_B7eq-2OY9PJ75T3zl5q7Q8VFls9Rq48)), 42 Nayland Street, Sumner (across Supermarket), Christchurch, New Zealand.

Basically, it is free to attend - a koha/donation is much appreciated if you can, and like to support us with $5 per session to help cover the costs for the hire of the hall. This group is about the freedom to do meditation your own way - no strings attached, no specific things to comply with, no religious orientation involved. If you do have a religious orientation yourself which you prefer to follow, you are welcome as well of course. Our group offers a space of openness, tolerance, inspiration, and oneness.

No matter whether it is your first meditation or you have done meditation before, it is an open space for 90 minutes for you to sit as long as you like, and come and go as you please. I have started this group in 2012 because I couldn't find a meditation group in Christchurch which was not affiliated to some sort of religion or certain philosophy, so our group is just about meditation and everybody can do it their own way.

We play recorded guided meditations during the first 45 minutes for everyone new to meditation, or everyone who prefers some guidance at the start. These guided meditations provide basic information about how to meditate. These audios are basic introductions spoken by Russel Delman (We have Russel's consent for the usage, but there are no further affiliations with his teachings). The guided meditations include instructions about posture and breathing, they are 15 mins in duration each with a 15 min break in-between, in which Tibetan Bell sounds are played to help with silent meditation. You are also welcome to lie down and just relax, or change your posture anytime you feel like it.

We also have some cards there, 'Inner peace cards' or 'Heart cards', which offer either a word or a theme to meditate on, if you wish. For the rest of the time, we just sit in silence with the beautiful Tibetan Bell sounds in the background or other supportive music.

Bolsters, blankets, and chairs from the yoga school are available for use. You are welcome to bring your own items if you like.

If it is your first meditation ever, then, if possible, please come a little earlier so that we can show you some sitting option.

In case you are interested in Yoga, we also offer a Yoga session prior to meditation from 4 - 5.15 pm. Yoga is the perfect preparation for meditation. Please look up Yoga & Intuition on meetup (https://www.meetup.com/Yoga-Intuition/ (https://l.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.meetup.com%2FYoga-Intuition%2F%3Ffbclid%3DIwAR1AjqJ5hsK-uPnOgJJhlDapxn6YGnb4dwKNQw-WBDWU8VND1pI3x8-D-HM&h=AT0Lw-O7UiB3PkGGnUTokyXCbEHcn91O3uw5nWspMJCTP864eE77r73DWHwDEdqCorzgY79KVuriKjUxDSaKkbLMs_Vp5nXc6-YlkDb_xh8q4jfRkQaacxfPx9EkUzmNyYRb3BvmPQ)) if you wish to make use of this option. The koha for meditation is included in the fee for the Yoga session. See you on a Sunday

Yoga is perfect as a preparation for meditation, and restorative Yoga does this in a special way: Winding down in relaxing poses, letting go of tension, calming body, mind, and spirit will provide a meditative environment to start with. We will combine restorative and Yin yoga poses, which provide some deep tissue stimulation besides the relaxing effect of the restorative poses. We warm up the body at the start to make sure the body is prepared to absorb the benefits of restorative poses in the best way possible. Please bring a blanket and 2 pillowcases. That will help us improvise while we cannot use all equipment of the venue as usual as long as we are in level 2 due to the coronavirus response.

We will do about 5 to 7 poses over the time of one class and stay for some minutes in each posture. Variations of postures will be offered, so you can experiment and find the best way for you personally. We start each session with a theme to set an intention for the class, sometimes working with the meaning of mantras, sometimes focusing on specific benefits of postures, sometimes integrating the mythology and history of certain postures.

Restorative Yoga can help to activate the self-healing energies of our bodies while creating time, space and stillness for this to happen. Always the deepening of breathing is encouraged while we relax to the beautiful music of Deva Premal & Miten or other mantras, and we finish the session with a guided deep relaxation. Meditation starting at 5.30 pm after this class is included, should you choose to combine both events.
