At the beginning of this practise, you are actively encouraged to lie down, (but you can sit if you wish to) and get as comfortable as you can. What follows is then a guided process of relaxation and self inquiry where you become increasingly aware of your physical body including your breath and inner world. You will likely experience yourself in a level of consciousness somewhere between being fully awake and sleeping and it is possible to lose the sense that one is separate from others and to tap into an unshakable sense of interconnectedness to all of life.
Through its practise, it teaches you to carefully investigate the nature of the beliefs that you hold about yourself, as well as to integrate feelings, emotions and thoughts both positive and negative in order to recognise your true nature, your underlying peace of mind and equanimity that is always present amidst all the changing circumstances of life. This meditative practise shows that finding inner peace is not some closed secret but open to everyone who is interested in finding it.
There are 10 steps to this meditation practise and during a course, each week we focus on key elements building up to a full practise in the final week. We can also run these as regular classes or one off sessions. At the beginning of each session we will explore different aspects of the practise in more detail and there will be time for discussions and questions and every week there will also be a practise.
