Meditation is one of the most natural and rewarding of all human activities. It gives direct, intuitive experience of higher realities, and is the cornerstone of true spirituality.
Each of us has a calm joyful center, deep within. It may get lost in the hectic pace of life, but it is there — waiting patiently for us. Meditation can help us rediscover that joy—and a rich, inner life. When we bring body, breath, mind, and heart into stillness…the peaceful state of meditation begins and the blissful experience of one’s true nature can unfold.
In this introductory class taught by Melissa Forsyth & Kim Pradhan, co-leaders of the Ananda Austin Meditation group with a combined fifty years of meditation practice, you will learn:
- What true meditation is, and is not
- Practical guidance, including posture, breathing, and relaxed concentration
- In class practice of the mantra
- Enhancing and deepening your meditation practice
When, by meditation, we withdraw restless thoughts from the lake of the mind, we behold our soul, a perfect reflection of Spirit.
