Our virtual meditation course covers several classical meditation techniques. Each class will focus on one technique at a time and offer simplified explanations on the philosophy and history. Light stretching is involved, so wear clothes you’re comfortable in and your yoga mat.
Having the capacity to be fully present, conscious of where we are and what we’re doing, and not unduly reactive or distracted by what’s going on around us is known as mindfulness.
While mindfulness is something we can all have, it is made more accessible to us when we practice it on a regular basis.
You’re mindful when you bring awareness to what you’re directly experiencing via your senses, or to your state of mind through your thoughts and emotions. Furthermore, there is mounting evidence that training your brain to be aware actually changes the physical structure of your brain.
