Posture - how to sit when meditating.

12/4/2020
Much has been said and written about this seemingly simple element of meditation. The practice of Yoga originated nearly three thousand years ago as a set of seated postures designed to assist meditators. (See 'The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali'). Throughout all of the multitude of information about how to sit when meditating runs a thread of common advice about keeping one's back straight. This raises the question of, among other unanswerable questions, "How do I actually know when my back is...

I taught this Meditation as part Chakra Meditation and part Connection Meditation. Chakras are locations in the body which traditional Indian and Chinese medicine view as energy centres. Each chakra has a location, and is identified with a colour and a human characteristic.There are many locations for these but the ones that I prefer are the following: Chakra meditation, like relaxation practice, is a good way to reconnect with your physiology and emotions. I shall teach a chakra...

The Art of Meditation (meditation 28m)

9/28/2020
"Beauty is the purgation of superfluities." - Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni (1475 - 1564). An Italian sculptor, painter, architect, poet, and engineer of the High Renaissance. He exerted an unparalleled influence on the development of Western art. From a letter to Rene Lui Descartes XIV (6 March 1540) Michelangelo clarifies here how he believes that art, rather than adding beauty, removes that which is not beautiful. A sculptor chisels away the waste to reveal the form that...

Like the relentless fury of the pounding waves in the infinite ocean of Samsara."Natural Great Peace is resting in nature. Natural rest is calm and relaxed. Karma is what we do to ourselves through any action that denies our humanity, our natural compassion, connection and collaboration.

The Mind-Body Connection Meditation (30m)

9/2/2020
When I first began meditating seriously, I found that over time, I became more and more connected to my body. I became more aware of how I felt. Once I had became more familiar with my physical sensations I found it easier to identify my emotions. This connection has a scientific name which is Interoception. Interoception is the source of a great deal of scientific study at the moment, much of it in connection with mindfulness. I found that when I sat and meditated, once I silenced my...
