“Meditation is not about stopping thoughts but recognising that we are more than our thoughts.”
Meditation is not just about quieting one’s mind - The practice of meditation leads the practitioner through a process of contemplation, uncovering the inner silence that lies beyond thoughts. This practice is superficial when only utilised as a strategy to de-stress. Rather, the Gnostic teachings view meditation as a means of awakening dormant parts of our hidden anatomy and connecting to the deepest parts of our interior - this can only be achieved by practising meditation with the aim of going inward. In doing so, we perceive a reality beyond the physical and connect with the mystery that lies deep within.
In this 3-week course, we will cover the following topics:
- Purpose of meditation
- Eastern vs Western attitudes towards meditation
- Learning how to meditate - posture and breathing
- Hidden anatomy linked with meditation
- Connecting with the mystery that lies within
Classes begin with a talk related to the subject of meditation, followed by a guided practice.
